Can your boat do THIS?

That vessel had all it's watertight doors locked down. No need for a bunch of bilge pumping... Maintenance and upkeep on a boat like this is numero-uno in getting through conditions like this.

Excellent piloting skills on display here. The darker blue captain powered up when riding down a wave face and then throttled down to try to stay atop a wave and ride it. A few times he went sideways then actually reversed to back up a wave and right the ships nose. Both those captains know their waters and their boats. wow. The grey boat seemed to just plod thru slow and steady. Great skills.

Are they converted Chaps ??

Actually we / I did bury the bow of the 186 into the base of a freighter bow wave that had blocked out the sunlight. Straight down. Looking into dark green water. Water to top of windshield. Bow cover held out all the water.

Chaps are DAMM good boats.
