West Coast Coasties at play

Some amazing recent shots taken off Tofino, BC - Anyone contemplating a November voyage in these waters should take heed. (Photos by Dave Ashurst)

Looks like fun. If I were sailing, I would be staying well outside of sight of land so as to not see what surfing was like with a sailboat.

Great pictures! That looks like one of their surfboats or MLBs (marine life boats I think). It must be a thrill to drive one of those from the flybridge in those conditions. I found some impressive videos of them in action on a Coast Guard page. I'd post the link but I'm too newb. Good times.

Faster,

WOW! No thanks, eh?

The photos show what looks to be a "home-made" Canadian CG MLB. They were built in Canada by Metalcraft under license from the USCG, replicating the 47' MLBs built by Textron that we use down here in the States.

Has anybody tried this with their sailboat?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yes, that is how the oil is changed, from used dirty oil, to clean oil!!

It is amazing what those craft can do, where they go etc, just to rescue folks that get into trouble!

Isn't that roll test similar to what the VOR boat have to pass? Why all the cheering?
