Ever Heard a grown man scream?

Ever heard a grown man scream?

I did last night, I almost wet myself from laughter. I was piloting the mount batten ferry last night as you do, and the weather seemed to take a nice turn for the worse, lots of rain and a nice breeze of around 30-35knots wsw. So anyway the boat (29ft long, open stern,pilot cabin) was rocking just a tad, I thought it was great fun but due to the fact that I could not see very well as the waves were crashing over the bow and as it was getting dark I was going to close early. good call really as it was getting even worse. Anyway on the last run a guy got on worrying about whether its safe to cross, I of course said yes, as it was...ish. So on the way over we hit some really nice waves, boom, all my stuff went all over the place and the door to the bow cabin came off. At this point the guy was screaming, I looked over to him and said 'its going to be ok'. I at this point was on the verge of laughing a little out loud, but with my pure powers of control kept it in

Now I would like to point out that if we were really in any danger I would not be taking the piss out of this guy. He just wasnt much of a boat swain.

Man I wish I was out in a jetski yesterday one day one day

We went skiing yesterday in my mates SeaDoo (boat not jetski). Twas a bit rough in the Sound but nice & flat in the lee of Penlee point. The sun was even shining there as well. It just started to turn nasty as we came back, late in the afternoon.

That's the great thing about the Sound; as long as the wind's in a steady direction, there's always somewhere sheltered.

Your guy should've had a few in the Mountbatten before crossing; wouldn't have bothered him then.

Anyways yes the guy should've gone for a few drinks, in fact knocking him out would've helped the situation, he was putting me off having fun

Lets just hope the bloomin weather is nice next weekend huh, I am getting desperate to launch my boat. until then I will be and and then maybe play my of sadness

I was very close to screaming when one of the guys from Sin Cities (on Bravo I think) nailed his nut sack to a table.
