You state water came from vents, but was wondering if all seacocks were
shut and if you are running a dry bilge.
Do you sell these boats for cheap when you’re done with them?
Guys, thank you for running this test It has certainly food for thought.
If you don’t change your routines/disciplines after watching this, then you
you fuck tard. Don’t be so arrogant.
Did anyone else read the title and thought they Capsized a Yacht Monthly?
Please enlighten me seemed that the boat did not return alone after the
overturned upside down, or am I mistaken.
What make is the Crash Boat?

When the boat was completely upside down, did it take pressure from the
crane to upright? I didn’t think that would be possible, maybe I
misunderstand what i think i’m seeing. And, not to underplay what would
obviously be a crisis, “days to clean up” really illustrates your point
about the 79 Fastnet. You -could- clean this up in days. The boat rolled to
be sitting intact & high in the water. Great video, as always.
Very interesting video. It seemed alot of water was coming from the high
side as she rolled. Must have been trapped there from before. Great test
though. P.S. is that boat going cheap now?!
Thank you Captain Obvious!
This is very interesting! I feel like buying latches and straps and adding
them to my boat! Thank you for the test!
Brilliant vid guys =) I love figuring out what’s going on down there when
boats you see find their hulls in direct sunlight. Some of those boats you
see getting slammed from the waves are just so strong. hope the boat
I’ve always wondered, wouldn’t the drag caused by the sails in the water
prevent the boat from going 180? And in the event it did go 180, wouldn’t
the same drag be a factor against the boat’s re-rotating upward? Thank you.
What about the batteries? I’ve been on boats where they have not been
beautiful yacht… can i have it!
Interesting. Add 1000 pounds of gear flying around, containers broken open,
electrical systems in operation, diesel motor running, fuel, sewage, storm
wave action etc..
this video turned my world upside down
The straps that the crane was pulling wrapped around the boat and attached
to the top deck of the boat so when it was upside down the crane kept
pulling on the straps to flip the boat right-side up. In a real capsize the
boat may stay keel-up for a while unless a wave helps flip it over.
yes, from 2 sources: the main entry to the cabin from the cockpit, and from
the air vents (which can be shutoff to prevent spray/rain from getting in,
but don’t hold up to being submerged). I don’t know why they didn’t explain
if you guys where paying attention… he said the water came from the air
vents and the open hatch
Some boats right themselves and some don’t. Some boats go all the way over,
and some don’t. The trouble with boat designs is that it’s a perfect 2×2
matrix: You can have a boat that’s dynamically stable but not ultimately
stable — which is what you want b/c that means it doesn’t roll but doesn’t
stay, but you can also have the *exact* *opposite*. The scary thing about
the big Vendee Globe boats, for example, is that once they go over, they
stay that way.
Thank you so much fot this test. A real eye opening sight that brings you
closer to reality and the need to plan seriously for risk avoidance on
board. Better see it now before it happens to you unprepared.
