Taken at the Rip, Port Phillip Heads Victoria Australia on 13.12.08.

The Pilot vessel was on his way out to meet an incoming ship, but had to pass through the notorious Rip first. Faced with heavy seas and gale force winds. This pilot vessel is fourty foot long to give you an indication of the size of the swell. The ‘Rip’ is known by seafarers world wide as one of the most notorious strips of water in the world
