The ones going under - what can I say, I'm amazed. Goes to show that there's more than one way to skin a cat.

The one going over...holy smokes, man. Glad I wasn't riding with him.

As a matter of fact, I think that these two examples perfectly illustrate that line between courage and insanity.

Peace,

The first two are awesome, although I wonder what they do with their "ballast" bags while sailing?

Third one is fake. Has to be.

It is waterbag, it is just fabric and water. It doesn't need much room to store.

This is almost "daily business" when going sailing. The Port where by swing keel boat is berthed is past a bridge, which is by 1m lower than the mast.

Before passing the bridge we lift the keel, attach a bag to the boom, fill it with 50 liter water, swing it lateral - and we have on average 50 cm "head room". But I agree, the first few times it was frightening. now we are used to, not really "big business", same as with the skipper in the video.

Merry Christmas to all of you,

I agree that the third one is a phony.

First two are interesting, but wondering what kind of stress those bags put on running and standing rigging?

Less stress than sailing puts on the rig.

I sail.

Amazing what I did at a frat party for a beer.
I'm just glad the dean never found out...

First two I have seen other renditions.

Third one, if you look closely in the beginning, you see a boat coming to, along with what appears to be a ramp. So while it may look fake, may very well be fake, there is just enough evidence that it could be real.
