    Very nice job, by both the skipper and the builder/designer.

    If it had a wave piercing bow they wouldn't have even spilled their tea.:rolleyes:

    Ok, shall we talk about the behavior of a wave piercer in a following sea, like the one at 0:14 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=_dVkeh7wUm4#t=14s ?

    If I could choose between riding through that storm in those pilot boats or same wave piercer, I personally wouldn't have a moment of hesitation.

    Sorry, I meant the wave piercer comment as a joke.

    Not force 10 though as reported in the Daily Mail article. But a nice patch of shoaling breakers to try the boat out. Great series of pics thanks for the link.
