Geez.. Who has all that crap on their boat..
I have Lagavulan whiskey, approx 20 odd 4 litre Tesco bottles of water filled up and strategically placed everywhere, I pretend the empties are extra bouancy.. About 6 buckets...
My 12 volt fridge which has been off for past 12 months up until recently when i needed to preserve my paint brushes and rollers along with a small bucket of paint in..
My engine is in the middle of the saloon with no cover over it because for 4 years now i cant decide which way to build it so i just think its easier to service the way it is...
Ive got perfect rig/sails/winchs/Engine/Autopilt/Aires windvane though..
I lost my cooker grill mesh somewhere and looked everywhere for one before 'borrowing' a shopping trolley from the local supermarket and boltcutted the thing to fit the stove top which stunk for a while till the chrome coating burnt off..

Id just probably own one of those Imocas and not even change the interior of it all..

Crewing on Tasman? You mean, getting wined and dined on Tasman. Pam is a commuter cruiser for the next five years, I'm a full time liveaboard six months per year which probably won't change. We'll probably begin throwing in several all inclusive Caribbean resorts per year during the winter, which will end up costing less than owning and keeping a boat in the Caribbean for three or four months per year.

No way. I think windy meter is out of calibration and/or set to read in m/s.

Same for the vid further down of the monohull supposedly in 50knots. at 50knots the water is smoking pretty good. There is white stuff everywhere.

Nice videos but really there is no need to exaggerate.

Video's never show it how it really is

Agreed on wave height but you can still see the effect of the wind on the surface of the water..

Indeed as others have stated just look at the amount of sail being carried. Even the Figaro boat would be reefed down in 35 knots or so and I put the wind in that video at no more than 35.

Some of the early Whitbread boats had little spinnakers that they flew in up to 50knots. They were about the size of a family dining tablecloth though.

Remember also that wind speed is the 10 minute average, not the max gusts. And also that in the US they use a 1 minute average so that is the reason that their hurricanes always seem stronger.

"There is white stuff everywhere."

Yeah... Kinda like this.

It also makes a HUGE difference as to what direction you're trying to head. Going with the wind... not so much water spray, but you'll still get soaked. Attempting a close reach.... a total and complete white out.

That looks moderately fresh. A few runs back to Stanley from south Georgia into the westerlies and you'll learn to hate it

All the mine's bigger than yours rubbish with wind speeds just hacks me off especially when it is so easy to call.

All the videos on this thread have been posted purely for your viewing pleasure, me thinks you might be missing the point.

Try to "enjoy the ride." Or... share one of your favorite sailing videos with the rest of us.
