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:

And here's the dismasting vid...

Thanks YM!!

Why did the Fastnet sailors abandon floating boats? Maybe this sheds a bit more light on the situation...

This is really brilliant stuff.

Thanks for posting this.

Great stuff, Smack!! Can't wait to watch the demasting when I get home. Really surprised at the amount of water spraying around in Vid #2.

Very educational. Thanks.

It was an excellent series. Thanks to Dylan for first bringing it to our attention and thanks Smack for the follow up.

The scene of the capsize with nothing screwed down was horrifying . The mast vid very educational.

No worries. Definitely thank DW. He found it.

And you're right about the educational nature of this. It's really brilliant. They've done what we all wish someone would do...put a camera on a boat in the middle of a disaster. Kudos to YM. THEY GET IT!!!

Another thing that was interesting to me was the inverted stability of that Jeanneau(?) w/o the mast! They had to keep craning it to get it to pop from the turtle. Imagine if a mast and sails were on that!

It seems even more obvious that you need wave action to right a mono - and that you might be inverted for a while if you really do go over. Freakin' scary.

Excellent stuff hope you find some more....
Thank you

Good stuff!

Great series of videos. Thanks for sharing Smack (& pass said thanks to DW), well worth the time to watch. Wouldn't want to think of the money that goes into those tests, but appreciate them nonetheless.
