This one was posted here almost a year ago. What gets me is the genius who was standing on the foredeck. I suppose he was yelling, "I'm the king of the world!"

I have absolutely no offshore experience, and I am sure I would be scared sh!tless to be out there in those conditions, but everything I've read says to get away from land in situations like that. The saddest thing to me is that the captain's success that time could encourage him to try it again next time.
