The Cruisers are great examples of guys making bad decisions and getting away with it.

No worries Max. Yeah, definitely decisions I'd hope not to make.

But, I do find that video of the mono at Point Panic very interesting when considering heavy weather tactics. That's, what, a 12'-15' HEAVILY breaking wave. Taking it bow on, they look to be in fairly good shape.

What would happen if that were to hit them astern? Just more stuff to ponder on the whole drogue vs. para-anchor debate.

Regardless, that's one tough boat.
