Bad stuff, they are lucky they didn't roll when they turned in the trough.

The Columbia River Bar is often far worse, I've been on the flying bridge of a 38' Tolley and lost the mast lights of another friends 38' Unifligh 100 yards ahead of us in large rollers, we would not have been there on an outgoing tide.

Crossing the Columbia River Bar on a fair day.

That last picture was indeed foolish, I know a bunch of people who will not cross the Columbia bar without a life jacket on, even if it is dead flat. The coast Guard tests survival ships there for a reason.

Quite impressive from several aspects, one of which is the seaworthiness of those vessels, another is the courage of those men.

It appeared as if the one in from with one stabilizer arm out did not turn as much when hit with a big wave as the vessel behind without the arm out.  Makes one think the captain of the front vessel has done this often before.

Yep this is the Grey River Bar on the West Coast of NZ. I have stood on the break water and watched these guys come in. With a big sea running it is quite a spectacle with a big crowd out to watch. They seem to come and go no matter what the sea conditions and yes there is a monument on the break water to those who don't make it.

Why don't they time their crossing for slack or incoming tide?

This is a river bar with a strong outgoing flow the tide makes very little difference and if there is a swell running it could in the winter be weeks before it drops. The biggest problem is the state of many older boats in the NZ fleet there is very little money in the industry and these boats are way underpowered with the river flow they can only just make headway meaning the crossing can take a long time.

The Columbia River is the largest river in the Pacific NW draining the west side of the Rocky Mountains from British Columbia to Montana and as far south in the Great Basin in Northern Nevada, the bar improves during slack or an incoming tide.

Wow!  That is rough! Shocked  And the guy on the 9320 boat seems as cool as a cucumber.  He's walking around the deck taking pictures! Cool

 I remember this on the 6 o'clock news they both made it in, it was of the Grey river bar arguably the worst in the country. All west coast bars can get a bit hairy.

This is why Kiwis make stabicraft boats.
These are the only boats that keep the mad beggars alive.
