Video of Boat in Rough Water

I was amazed at what this boat managed to get through. I wonder if the skipper was used to those conditions or simply lucky to get through.

Lucky... If that was a sailboat it woulda rolled in that broach. His boat stayed extremely stable, I'd like to see the underbody I suppose its possible he's seen stuff like that before but It doesn't sound like it.

dont worry we were all wearing immersion suits and life jackets,and the owner wasnt watching plus if we get in on a friday we get a better price for our fish.
reminds me of sailing in and out of newlyn,or the helford with a good easterly.
commercial fishing,health and safety......... dont even go there..........

fook the cold beer its all about sleep..............and maybe getting a leg over,when youve been at sea for 9 days and awake 20hrs plus a day....knee deep in slime and fish guts............
