    Default How about these for waves!...Columbia Bar USA



    These fishing boats are returning from fishing off the coast of Washington and Oregon. They are crossing the Columbia Bar, which is where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean. It is one of the most dangerous ports of entry anywhere in the world. There are at least eight deaths a year of people trying to get in or out.



    These boats are self-righting, have a super low center of gravity, sealed engine compartments, basically bullet proof glass windows, double steel hulls.



    The Coast Guard has closed the port to any other boats due to waves of 35 to 45 feet.

    I also posted this clip on Ship Nostalgia site and someone has asked why this clip has been doctored as it apparently crossing the Grey River Bar in Greymouth New Zealand and boat 9320 is the Moonwalker registered in Riverton NZ!
    Doesn't alter the height of the waves or the seamanship though...

    I had not heard the commentary as my PC soundboard is broken!
