Real Emergencies & Fixes (The YM Crash Boat)

I just ran across this series of videos from Yachting Monthly - thanks to Dylan Winter. This stuff is seriously top-notch.

The lads take out a Jeanneau 40 (I think) and proceed to rip it apart with a dismasting/jury rig, capsize/roll, hole below the waterline, etc. They then take you through the real use of all the tools and techniques we always hear about.

One of the best series out there. Here's the channel:

Thanks YM!!
