  1. Report said "many relatively modern production vessels, such as Essence, are constructed from materials that are more susceptible to flexing under pressure. This, when combined with the larger windows that are commonly found in modern sailing vessels, makes the rebated substrate area around the windows more susceptible to failure." Seems they mean the vessel wasn't seaworthy. So even if the storm covers had been fitted they would have needed substantial engineering attachment to stop them being blown out.
  2. The offending post SUPPORTED the kick in the face (didn't just post a link Harry). That's untenable. As for self-defence argument, gimme a break.

It's incredibly hard not to panic when you see the beach disappearing so you need to reassure yourself and them. Don't get close to the victim if you can avoid it or they'll pull you under. Just reassure them and tell them help is on the way and we'll probably just get washed back to the beach soon. On one occasion on 90 mile beach in Victoria help was nowhere (LOL) and we were washed back in about 15 mins. On another occasion me and the victim got
  11. You must have missed the bit where she said he was having difficulty keeping his head above water. You must have also missed the bit where it said every second counts.
  12. Yes. Well done to Matt!!! Who's the new owner?
