I think it's fair to say, that the Atlantic, North sea, English channel, Irish sea, and any number of others (the great lakes included) can kick up a sea quite easily that none of us would want to be out in, so a pissing contest will prove nothing, shit, i've been in the Solent (relatively small stretch of water between UK mainland and the Isle of Wight) in stuff that scared the shit outta me, so lets not get into a "my seas are bigger an yours" contest fellas, we're bigger n that.

6' seas is already 1' or 2' past where I like it. Any more than that and I'll be at the pub with a pint.

Larry Smith and George Clooney can have at it. I wish them the best.

Also some great footage of a major structural failure in this Freeze-Frame clip. Looks like a fkkn bomb went off in the cabin!

Well this fall/winter there was a storm warning of 30ft waves on the radio for the Gulf of Finland and when I heard it I almost crapped in my pants as I live by the sea.

Rumour has it that the sea was just as big when the Ferry Estonia sank just 40 miles from where I write this.
The Solvent is known to be nasty but nowhere theres so much shipwrecks than in the Baltic...a coincidence?
Dont think so has to do with the shallowness and especially our archipelago.

Me stating Larry was thought of him whne in a hotboat article he was definitely against step bottoms for offhosre boats.
Told that 70-80 mph is enough in heavy conditions for any brave soul.

I didnt mean this to soound as a pissing contest...or yes actually I did but with a tongue in cheek.
Me got very much respect for Jersey/ NE coast boaters as a lot of Top Sailors come from there.

Now that you brought this topic up, I wonder just how big the seas can be that some of the Offshore Powerboats can handle? Pics or video would be nice, as lost as you have a helicopter filming you. And I can really be brazen with an Apache as long as I don't have a 20 year mortgage on the bugger. That's my main reason for respecting my property......I have to pay for it. Reality is a pain in the wallet.

Rough water/Smooth water what the Hell.
When you are out in it. You Are OUT in IT.
You just gotta get out there and take what comes.
The aim of boats is using them and getting time on the water.
When you are happy to be back in port,there is generally a good reason for It.!and you know it.
The more you use the boats the more you respect the elements
and how your boat works.
Sometimes you have no choice and you get caught in the rough. Keep it Safe.

Very nice, although as I said in another thread, a huge percentage of the US offshore fleet, seems to derive from one basic hull/running surface, that is, the Jim Wynne/Walt Walters Cary/Cigarette.

As I also said in another thread, walking along the dry storage racking at Fort Apache a few years back, it was astonishing just how many 30' and up Yanky monos appear to have the same running surface/topsides, and even have the same wee fault in the st/bd upper spray rail, just a liitle 'turn down' of the last 6 inches or so, but a berth mark none the less, showing the origin of the multitude of manufacturers there.

We looked at the 36 Pantera 'Fair & White' when it was here with the P1 fleet in 2004, it has the very same berth mark!

In fact Tony Davis on this forum, supplied that team with a replacement Bravo gimble assy whilst they were here, as they bust one in the first very rough race at Brighton....I'll post a couple of pics for Ed & co.

It begs the question, just how many boats are in existance around the globe, that derive from that first 'plug'? quite amazing.

OK, rather than posting pics, i'll just link to the thread about Brighton '04, there's some great shots, well worth a look.
