I remember the first time I saw this video posted. It was the same day Elvis died I think.

The crew secretly votes the newbie off the boat.  

Skipper says, "You're the preventer - go brace the boom!"

Skipper then whispers "Jibe ho..."

Whoosh - Splash!!!!   Pass a beer to the skipper for a job well done!!!

So you are saying the video is faked, didn't happen? Confused.

the guy in the companionway has good timing

Yeah, but the guy just forward of the helmsman is ducking INTO the mainsheet - he's lucky he didn't get rope burn on the neck!

I thing they rehearsed it a few times before the final take.

You should only need some one to hold the boom out in light wind anyway.  Lucky he didn't hit the side stay.

Given the thread title, I tried googling "Hooker Sailing" to post an appropriate photo.

I now know there is a class of boat in Ireland called the Galway Hooker

it is pretty fucking funny though. I mean, who ever gets tired of funny shit? Like that boat getting crushed under the wharf?

One definition of comedy is tragedy happening to someone else.

Not funny. My friend, and many of you remember him, Donzo Wilkinson, was killed on a 25 ft. boat in Long Island Sound not too many years ago during an accidental jibe. The helmsman should always take care, since he has control of the boat.

I launched my sister like that when I was 17 and she was 19.  It was hilarious back then.
