Wasn't the OP just asking us to view a video of a Coast Guard Training vessel?
As a RCMSAR Volunteer, I have been privileged to be on the 29' RIB we at unit 25, Saltspring Island use for both training and rescues in heavy weather.
This video reminds me of my own opportunity to be on the helm in the heaviest weather Georgia Strait can muster, and having an opportunity to learn to ride the wave tops, where the visibility is best, for the Search part of our mandate, was priceless.
Not seen in the video, due to the smaller wave height, was the interesting habit of RIBs to try to "stuff"the bow. which is all too easy, should you come down into the trough too fast. Getting to the scene quickly is the object, how it can be accomplished takes finesse.

Alas, a SWATH hull vessel is out of our budget because we went for 'happy & humble' instead of rich...

We played in Gardner Canal this summer...where did you get to?

Deep fee made for rough stuff

This thread is very confusing
The original deepvee design by. C Raymond Hunt , Moppie built for the Miamiís -Nassau race proved that a deepvee could run at speed faster and safer than any other design. It made Bertram the company it became. For high speed running nothing beats a deepvee hull if you want to get there. It might break you but the boat will get there and fast.
C.raymond hunt also designed another iconic and very popular boat that nobody in their right mind would call a boat for the rough stuff, the original Boston whaler ( the one they sawed I half).
Itís entirely horses for courses , pick your poison.

I would prefer his best design the Concordia yawl .... but thatís another story.
Cheers Warren

There's a huge difference in cruising, running hard in good to bad conditions and survival.

Trying to say any hull is "right", best", or "survivable" in varied conditions is only atrempted by the armchair captain.

A moments inattention by the skipper in certain conditions can sink a boat faster than a good torpedo hit.

Does no one check the weather forecast before heading out ?

I KNOW I can, but, do I HAVE to ?

On 3 occasions I've been caught, once was my own stupid fault for not checking the forecast. second, I was following an 'expert' sailor and thought I'd look like a wimp if I voiced my concerns and the third time was when I was berthed in Lymington, we had visitors with whom we were going with to the Southampton boat show, they wanted to go for a spin on the sea as they'd never been before.
I suggested taking the local train but was overruled, leaving harbours was all oohs and aahs, isn't this lovely, 'I don't know why you're so nervous', after reaching open water and 45 mins of short steep chop there were no more comments. Fortunately I was then able to turn into Southampton water and calmer waters, I offered to make a fried eggs and bacon breakfast for everyone but there were no takers !

But you wouldn’t want to be hauling pots in a 4 foot swell with that Bertram. As said before different designs for different needs.

It’s said that Hunt never received any royalties on the Bertram as he never applied for a patten on the design.

There's still no guarantee that the forecast is accurate or the weather won't change quickly.

My dad took me and my brother out one night to do some night dives off the east coast of Florida. He checked the weather and it was 3 to 5 with a moderate chop. We get out about 7 miles out from Sebastian Inlet when the seas kicked up big time. Almost instantly we were free falling to the trough of each wave. It may have been only a second or two but it felt like an eternity. Thankfully my dad's boat was a 25ft Delta and very good in nasty weather. So we slowed down and made it out to where were going without a problem and back.
