    This video was shot by Yachtingtv in the UK. These guys give a really good idea to viewers as to what goes on inside the cabin when a yacht capsizes.

    I feel they could have performed more tests under different circumstances. As per my comments (user FlivverFord) posted under the video they could've been more thorough. Mast up, sails up, cockpit hatch open, in a swell & more camera's etc.

    Well, when i got knocked down and was walking on the cabin ceiling ,
    what i noticed was that the black water tanks backed up thru the toilets and deposited a foul beef stew type coating over everything. Nasty smell...made you projectile vomit like that kid in the Exorcist. None return duckbill flappers are a nice detail in the sewage line

    Many yachts that flip over also shed their storage batteries with deadly consequences.. Remember the rule states that batteries must be secured to withstand a 360 incident

    No shortcuts

    I hear ya'. In the video you can actually see some water coming back out from the drain in the sink. They never mentioned the toilet. Doesn't bare thinking about.
    Do I wanna ask how you cleaned up the mess???

    It looks like the hatch is not watertight.

    Yes Kiwis are mighty handy to have onboard. One year passing thru the Panama Canal the engine failed. Coolant pump. I unbolted the pump , gave it to the Kiwi and he hitchhiked across panama to the pacific side, found a funky machine shop, rebuilt it , then hitchhiked back to the boat.

    Panama is a very dangerous country for white boys.

    I saw a self righting test of a Coast Guard vessel made for some extreme place where knock downs were commonplace. When they rolled it on it's side, a fire extinguisher came off the wall and busted out a window, the cabin filled with water and then the boat rolled upside down and stayed that way.
