Whale of an encounter

Boat was steel, Roberts design - had they been in a FG boat, I fear there would be less talking, more crying.

My wife is nervous about hitting a whale, now she is nervous about a whale hitting us. That would have been a unbelievable experience.

Thanks for the vid!

Complete luck that they were filming it at the right moment to catch it on vid.

Don't mess around with wild animals.....Just like the people that got hurt by the Bison in Yellowstone...they were filming when they threw a stick/object at it.

I guess they never heard of the..........ESSEX
