Video of two SMALL boats crossing Columbia R Bar

Incredible video - fishing boats in rough sea - YouTube

I note that these boats are about the size or smaller than many of our"trawlers"

Believe this is New Zealand not Columbia River as per a couple of posts a few months ago (one by Marin).

Amazing how they are walking around the decks calmly with a cup of tea. Crazy Kiwi's.

Not sure where it is. Looks like the water at the mouth of the Murray River in Oz, but it could be many different places.

Not to play this down

The telephoto lens adds to dramatic seas. The wave period is greater than it looks. Not that this isn't hairy conditions. Note the crewman standing unbraced. This is an example of conditions were a full length keel , large rudder and prop, low center of gravity will save your bacon. This could have been any of a number of west coast bar crossing. It does look very hairy.

What is with the extension on the port side of 8876 - is that a one side stabilizer or is it something to deal with nets?

And that's why boats are shaped the way they are.

There have been a lot of boats lost crossing the Grey River bar, it is a very scary place. That is something that I never intend to try. If I ever venture south from the Marlborough Sounds, I will be going down the East coast.

I will ignor Hendo's comment
