    That stew makes a big boat seem small.

    Of course on the opposite end of the boat handling spectrum........Well, not all of these skippers are inept. I think the guy with the Scout at about 7 minutes in does a great job coming in.

    In the opening post, the way the captain slid the ship sideways between the waves to go around the breakwater barrier is much like how a hovercraft would do it.

    The second video is pretty amazing, will have to watch the whole thing later.

    DogCavalry I aim to misbehave.

    Oh yeah. Just so informative how developed those seas are. A very long fetch, without much variation.
