Well that is a funny thing. That is the same thought many here had after looking at the video of that Irwin. Then one of the owners of the boat started posting about how everything in the cabin is secured for sea as shown in the video. They say they go from NY to FL every winter and that they do sail the boat. I'm not sure about 30' seas but they claim she is sea worthy as is. They certainly are very meticulous about the interior.
When I first stumbled upon that video and posted it here I thought no way will the owner ever see this. Small world indeed.
