Wow. Well written.

Even on this quick text book rescue it took 8 hours to accomplish in F8 gale and the whole ships expert crew making a ship do what it's not designed to do.

Great work.

Incredible. The entire time the crew was on the ladder, I worried the sailboat's rigging could hit him.

The article indicates it took over 5 hours for the ship to get there, so this was in the middle of the ocean.

At the end of the video it says the keel was damaged.

I wonder how? Is there any more information on what caused this?
