    Default Old Thread with Coast Guard Training Pics????

    Hey everyone,

    I am trying to find an old thread that had some pics in it from the Coast Guard trianing with the 47 footer in the breakers and surf where the boat pretty much capsized and then self righted. It may have been off the California coast. There was like 4 pics where it was sitting in front of the wave and then went into the wave and was straight up, then upsidedown, then upright again.

    I have been doing a ton of searches and can't find it. Anyone remember what I am talking about? I was trying to show someone and it is driving me crazy looking for it!!!!

    HA HA

    Thats it, I hadn't seen it on YouTube but those are the pictures in the video.

    Crazy times, the water must have been fairly deep right there for it to recover.

    I think you should sea trial the new boat there. I can see it now "Hold my beer and watch this!"

    Default Don't believe what they say

    When I was living in Washington they had the same type of boat, but it didn't right it self. They think the mast hung up on the bottom. No body made it out. Just because it says it is unsinkable or unbreakable don't believe it.

    Mother Nature will win, just give her time. I've seen to many nasty days on the water.
