    Do you sell these boats for cheap when you’re done with them?

  2. kelticpaddler says:

    Guys, thank you for running this test It has certainly food for thought.
    If you don’t change your routines/disciplines after watching this, then you
    are foolhardy.

    you fuck tard. Don’t be so arrogant.

    Did anyone else read the title and thought they Capsized a Yacht Monthly?

  6. lcruh says:

    Please enlighten me seemed that the boat did not return alone after the
    overturned upside down, or am I mistaken.

    What make is the Crash Boat?

    Jeanneau Sun Fizz 40

  9. Galt425 says:

    When the boat was completely upside down, did it take pressure from the
    crane to upright? I didn’t think that would be possible, maybe I
    misunderstand what i think i’m seeing. And, not to underplay what would
    obviously be a crisis, “days to clean up” really illustrates your point
    about the 79 Fastnet. You -could- clean this up in days. The boat rolled to
    be sitting intact & high in the water. Great video, as always.

    Very interesting video. It seemed alot of water was coming from the high
    side as she rolled. Must have been trapped there from before. Great test
    though. P.S. is that boat going cheap now?!

    Thank you Captain Obvious!

  12. Charles W. Hsu says:

    This is very interesting! I feel like buying latches and straps and adding
    them to my boat! Thank you for the test!

  13. 69chris96 says:

    Brilliant vid guys =) I love figuring out what’s going on down there when
    boats you see find their hulls in direct sunlight. Some of those boats you
    see getting slammed from the waves are just so strong. hope the boat
    recovered. =)

  14. cellardoor70 says:

    I’ve always wondered, wouldn’t the drag caused by the sails in the water
    prevent the boat from going 180? And in the event it did go 180, wouldn’t
    the same drag be a factor against the boat’s re-rotating upward? Thank you.

  15. Stephen Lediard says:

    What about the batteries? I’ve been on boats where they have not been
    properly secured.

  16. John Cusick says:

    beautiful yacht… can i have it!

  17. jcook007fix says:

    Interesting. Add 1000 pounds of gear flying around, containers broken open,
    electrical systems in operation, diesel motor running, fuel, sewage, storm
    wave action etc..

    this video turned my world upside down

  19. yTube BlowsBigBalls says:

    The straps that the crane was pulling wrapped around the boat and attached
    to the top deck of the boat so when it was upside down the crane kept
    pulling on the straps to flip the boat right-side up. In a real capsize the
    boat may stay keel-up for a while unless a wave helps flip it over.

  20. richardmg9 says:

    yes, from 2 sources: the main entry to the cabin from the cockpit, and from
    the air vents (which can be shutoff to prevent spray/rain from getting in,
    but don’t hold up to being submerged). I don’t know why they didn’t explain

  21. Rainingblood180 says:

    if you guys where paying attention… he said the water came from the air
    vents and the open hatch

  22. CinemaDemocratica says:

    Some boats right themselves and some don’t. Some boats go all the way over,
    and some don’t. The trouble with boat designs is that it’s a perfect 2×2
    matrix: You can have a boat that’s dynamically stable but not ultimately
    stable — which is what you want b/c that means it doesn’t roll but doesn’t
    stay, but you can also have the *exact* *opposite*. The scary thing about
    the big Vendee Globe boats, for example, is that once they go over, they
    stay that way.

  23. Walid Halabi says:

    Thank you so much fot this test. A real eye opening sight that brings you
    closer to reality and the need to plan seriously for risk avoidance on
    board. Better see it now before it happens to you unprepared.

    So, the lesson is: when you go to sea, EVERYTHING must be either strapped
    down or in a sealed compartment. You cook dinner…. you wash the dishes
    and stow them before eating ect.
