I didn't think the Motihe Channel would ever get that wild, even "wind against tide".

I "think" it's the Greymouth Bar?

I’ll be dam’d disappointed if my “Resident Stalker” doesn’t turn up and have a dribble. :lol:

I should avoid going side on, asking for trouble.

As an ex passenger of the QE 2 I know what I am talking about.

You want to put an airplane in the same position those boats were in? Now that's a video I wouldn't mind seeing ;-)

I had to wonder how the camera remained so steady till I I saw a shot of the cameraman on shore.

Excellent catch, BM! Yes it's the Greymouth River. Boat registrations lead to a bit more info. :)
