they're designed to do that, and if you look at the sequence they are upright in the final few frames

When I was cruising up the coast this summer, and made a stop at Morro Bay I had no idea why the Coast Pilot advised using "extreme caution." Now I know. I wet my pants for these guys :unsure:

Channels
(55) The entrance to Morro Bay is through a buoyed
channel between the protective breakwaters. Due to
continual shifting of the channel, the buoys are not
charted as they are frequently shifted to mark the best
water.
(56) Mariners are advised to use extreme caution when
entering the bay and to contact the harbormaster or
Coast Guard Group Long Beach on VHF-FM channel 16
for current entrance and channel conditions.
(57) From Fairbank Point, on the E side of the bay, a pri-
vately maintained channel leads S to the Morro Bay
State Park Basin at White Point; the depth for 0.3 mile
is about 7 feet. The basin has depths of about 8 feet.
Vessels heading for the basin should approach White
Point close inshore as the channel narrows at this
point. In July 1993, shoaling to 1 foot was at the en-
trance to the basin. Swells from North Pacific winter
storms sometimes break across the entire entrance
.

Just 2, the starboard engine flooded and the photog from the other magazine...but that's all hush hush.. ;)

I'll take a pass, what is the estimated force of the wave in tons?

They are not exactly designed to do that.......flip/turtle over the stern......that being said it was training for a coxswain that is trying to be a surfman....From the first hand acount this was a wave that came in that was quite a bit bigger than the normal sets. For those of you who do not know the highest fix point....(radar dome) is almost 20 feet off the waterline so that should give some perspective....the top of the HF antenna is 28'6".....

I drive 47s too and no..... I am to old and too beat up to do this stuff..... My hat is off to all Surfman....they are the pros pro....

Why arent they gunning it in an effort to get there before it breaks? Looks like they're idling along.

Got to remember you do not want to go launching off the back of a 30 footer either.....that is where the experience and skill is involved....to get it just right...and the only way to do it is get out there.....

Bad things happen when 40k lbs of boat is 30 feet out of the water....

You'd think only insane people would do this, but I bet it makes good practice. Amazing, must be good times to be on a team.

Balls of carbon fibre to go out in those conditions! I just finished a book called "10 hours to dawn" which tells the story of severall ships including a C/G 44 and a pilot ship that went after a tanker on In Salem mass during the blizzard of 78. Good read.

Those boats look like they are built to spend as much time on there side as they do upright,

I assume those guys are strapped into bucket seats, but what the hell are they doing or thinking when the boats is laying on its side for 10-15 secs

What about the guys that are standing, do they just fall all over each other?

How many casualties?


Have a buddy in the CG here (not on board at time) that said no one was hurt too bad, but a lot of people high up were pissed off. It wasn't supposed to be that kind of training I guess. Those guys are always cruising outside the bay in bad weather. Gotta love having them around. There are a lot of sailors who get in trouble (at least very scared) trying to get in here. That picture of the lay of the land doesn't do justice to the waves coming in. There is a parking lot about 100 yards or so in on the south side of the rock that routinely gets closed because of the waves. I don't think I have ever seen the waves hit the lot, but they easily knock anyone down who ventures out of the parking lot on to the rocks. You can be 1-2 miles in to town and at the right spot can see the waves breaking over the jetty. They look amazing and scary at 2 miles away.

Found a couple pictures out of that parking lot area (not my pics).

Surf boats are pretty much replaced by inflatables but these guys give up their time on weekends to and do a great job of saving lives of idiots that don't follow the signs and get washed out to sea
