Sounds like a someone working towards a Darwin award... Also, in many waters, that a good way to feed the sharks and other marine beasties...

In one of Tania Aebi's books, she relates a similiar tale about the owner of the boat they're delivering doing much the same, except moments after he gets out of the water on his second time, a shark slams in to the boarding ladder... needless to say, he stopped doing it...

I think that qualifies for stupidity rather than just poor seamanship.

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.

It does seem to be a rather young age to be determining who has the potential for a swimming scholarship at Indiana University doesn't it?

I submit "seamanship" to be the degree of competence displayed while performing the duties of a seaman as described by Bill.

All other definitions can be attributed to "sea manners", "civility" and "common sense".

I'm pretty inexperienced still, but I think the measure of good seamanship is a consistently good result. Beyond claims, promises, the warranty, intelligence & wisdom, forecasts, "experience", knowledge, plans, predictions, intuition, insight, capability, backups, options, preparation, common sense, sufficient resources, strength & stamina, etc ... beyond all of that, there is what actually happens, reality, the result. I think that is the measure of seamanship. If you use whatever gifts you have and keep getting a good result you must be doing something right. Reality is a hard teacher, and the only judge and jury that matters, it's beyond ********.

And the measure of bad seamanship is all that stuff that keeps causing you to get stuck in port, sitting around on the hard, costing you money and time, causes you or someone else injury or death, makes you lose your boat, bangs up and breaks stuff, etc .. a bad result.

good seamanship

In the modern era how Is good seamship defined?
The boats of the modern era are poor excuses for seaboats
if using the last volvo race as an example. multable serious boat
structural failures. It seems that the lesson learned in the past
have not been heeded by the current community of sailors.
using classic seamans skills will only renforce your seamanship skills and allow you to handle snotty conditions with relative safety.
