Re: Bad Bad Day

Bad day and a bad decision to enter that channel

Only when you make a series of stupid decisions!!!

WTF was that guy thinking? People just hanging on deck while making an approach to a tuff channel in bad conditions. Goes close to the jetty where the wave energy is higher and the conditions worse. That guy deserves to pay a stupid tax and give his boat to someone smarter.

Re: Bad Bad Day

We all check the box:

"I agree to abide by the terms of the blah blah blah..."

WITHOUT ever reading anything...

This is a perfect example of what people should be forced to watch before they are handed oceangoing vessel documentation/registration...

Or that has been said here earlier today...

"You seem like a reasonably bright chap... (pilot) Sure... a 50' Jenny sounds like a good first boat for you..."

OH... You might want to see this first...

Sheesh....

Re: Bad Bad Day

Looked like he was angling for the flat water as soon as possible. Quite a bore. Crew needed to be away from the deck and hanging on. Power boat should have just tossed them a line & towed to flat water. By the look of the sails & equipment, looks like a racer or club boat. Where was this? There are harbors here on Lake Michigan that must be avoided in certain winds.

Grand Haven - Strong West wind. Stay away. These hydraulic jumps roll between parallel jetties for over a half mile and rattle marinas 1.5 miles upstream.

I'm going to give my 16 year old, new driver, a semi-truck and trailer to drive to school. Go for it kid, don't listen to the nay-sayers.

Re: Bad Bad Day

No harnesses. The power boat could have had a line on the horeshoe lifering and just circle the folks in the water to let them grab the line then towed them ashore. The power boat comes out then goes back in?

What were they thinking?

The wave action is less along the jetty in this video and along most jetties in general. Rips and currents tend to run along them.

And its *tough, Mr. President.


This video was hashed out at reddit a few days back.

He was making the correct approach. To make the entrance. Way to dodgy to attempt another way. He did well but was unlucky she looked very underpowered , she should have full military on making that run.

The wave starts to break at the jetty. How does that make the wave action less?

Thanks for correcting grammar on the internet. Really adds to the discussion.

Don't really get the Mr. President line.

What were they thinking?

Are you nuts. (A) trying to stay holding a line is almost impossible , (b) the risk of the whole lot entangling in the prop.
