Re: Good grief!

Bouncy, but it looks like they know what they're up to. The boats seem able to turn & maneuver well enough, and don't look like they're taking much water on deck. They disappear from view -- but aren't being buried under tons of water. One boat even seems to have some gear in the water on purpose. Their decks aren't streaming with water four feet deep when they become visible again. Appears as if they're just going about their business near a rough patch of water.

Re: Good grief!

Did you see the guy out on the back deck? He didn't look too worried. I don't think he was even wearing a life jacket. Had a cup of something though. The blue hull troller (older one) looked like he was having more fun!

Re: Good grief!

I started a thread a few days ago witn this video.

The relephoto lens distorts the time period of the swells, its really a comfortable ride.

It's the entrance to the Columbia River in the PNW. The pictures are being taken on the Oregon side, Washington is on the north side. This appears to be a normal passage during an ebb tide. The preferred time is at slack tide.

I suspect that the observers are waiting for an approaching storm, when things will really get wild. .

Re: Good grief!

For the geographically challenged, the video was of boats in Greymouth, northwest coast South Island facing the Tasman Sea, New Zealand. That's about three hours' drive west of Christchurch, through the mountains. Click on the tab that lets you get details. It was used elsewhere to illustrate PNW conditions but was from a third of the world away.

Re: Good grief!

I simply copied the URL and watched the vid on You Tube. At first I too thought of the Columbia River. A very real danger is loss of bouyancy when passing from salt to fresh water.

You are correct. Sorry I should have checked the email I received from a ellow cruiser who now lives in the Swiss Alps

The following video is of the Columbia River

Re: Good grief!



Here are some pictures from Newfoundland/Labrador. There was a video that these shots were taken from but I can't find it now.

Re: Good grief!

We took my friend's 38' Cheoy Lee Sigma across the Columbia River Bar this last October. Very interesting! Very bouncy. It was the 2nd day after the Astoria bridge was closed due to high winds. The Coast Guard turned us back the first time but let us go a few hours later.
I'd been across that bar twice before in a Navy Destroyer Escort many years ago but I was down in the Fireroom so didn't see the action. Just felt it.
The weather and tides need to be right for a small boat to go out.

Re: Good grief!

That's okay and the ship videos are impressive; I hate to imagine crossing the bar in a small boat in those conditions.

I was wondering if that was the Columbia bar. but, who'se taking the photos, and how are they keeping the camera so stable...?

Re: Good grief!

Near the end of the video, the camera pulls back to show another photographer on land and you can still see the boats in the background, so the guy filiming appears to be ashore.

Re: Good grief!

Cape Disappointment is home to the USCG's Motor Lifeboat training school. If you want to learn rough water boat handling check this out. Interested in signing up? The 44 footers can keep on going after a roll-over . . .

Just an over sized jet ski. Looks like fun!
