Re: Video of a submerged object strike/boat sunk

Wow - that's a rare glimpse of a rare event. The collision is not as violent as I would have thought hitting something that big.

I wonder what Brent Swain would say?

That's likely a mighty big "IF", there... (grin)

Hard to tell, but we can't be sure anyone was on watch in the cockpit at the time, it's not a very pretty day, after all... Wouldn't surprise me at all, if the video was edited to end just before a startled crewmember scrambles up out of the companionway...

That view affords an entirely different perspective from that of a watchstander in the cockpit, of course, and that turbulence may not have appeared to be nearly as apparent to someone at deck level... Not to mention, perhaps huddled behind a hard dodger, and a forward view greatly obscured by all those freakin' jerry cans stowed forward...

I ran a near-sister ship to a BCC south last winter, and with the blocky deckhouse, the visibility forward from a sitting position (and I'm pretty tall), is not all that great... This pic was taken while standing up, and if I had lined the rail with jerry cans and all that other crap, I would have been flying pretty blind, as well... One of the several things I hate about bowsprits, it's amazing what can get 'hidden' behind them if you don't keep routinely shifting your perspective...

I dunno, but I think in the article at 38' Latitude, they worked on saving it for a while before they got in their life raft. Pulled the DVR?

ヨット「エオラス号」のポール(海面から高さ5メートル)に設置していた定点観測カメ*ラが撮影したもの。 0:21右前方に鯨?のようなもの、ヨットが衝突(0:28)し、*大きく揺れたあと、海中の物体(0:3 3 右舷に黒い影??)が見える。

 辛坊治郎氏(57)と全盲のセーラー岩本光弘さん(46)が乗った小型ヨットが、太平*洋横断中に遭難し 海上自衛隊のUS-2に救助された事故で、24日、ヨットが浸水する*直前の映像を公開

 太平洋横断を企画した「プロジェクトD2製作委員会」が映像を海上保安庁に提出すると*ともに、「ブライ ンドセーリング」公式ホームページに掲載

 映像は小型ヨットから辛坊氏が救命ボートに脱出直前にカメラからデータを取り出したも*の

Re: Video of a submerged object strike/boat sunk

Looking at it full-screen, it sure looks like a whale (or two). It always amazes me that in an ocean that big - two random lines can intersect at just the wrong moment.

Re: Video of a submerged object strike/boat sunk

Another striking endorsement for BLIND SAILING. A concept I have to totally disagree with, for exactly this kind of reason. By all means, sail, crew, enjoy, but someone needs to keep watch. Life ain't fair.

Re: Video of a submerged object strike/boat sunk

Regarding blind sailing, anyone ever notice the brail keypads on drive thru banking windows? WUWT?
