That's not how I woulda done it.  I guess that's why they don't let me steer the boat. 

 

A couple of times it reminded me of those submarines drug smugglers use.  Only the submarines were sticking up further out of the water.  I recon the japanese boats have better waterproofing all the way around.

I know I would have wanted to get that bow pointed into those waves and swells as soon as I could. That boat almost heeled over totally one time. I would have had to change my skivvies after that!

An island nation must have somebody who can steer a boat

 

Was just gonna say. Between Japan and England they probably have the best sailors in the world.

Just thinking about the return trip....headed back to the opening, with following  30 foot seas running perpendicular to the entrance, and when you make the hard turn to port to enter the channel, you get smacked broadside, and with no where to go except the rocks and the leeward shore.  I think I would be tempted to stand off for a bit, until those waves die down a bit.

 

Great bit of boat handling!
