The Port of Melbourne Pilot Boat battling the Rip and strong seas against gale force winds, at Port Phillip Heads Victoria Australia.

The Rip is known by seafarers all over as one of the most notorious stretches of water in the world, because of the narrow channel through the heads, the strong unpredictable currents and strong south to south-westerly winds

    When I was with the Delaware River and Bay Authority Police in Delaware, I had to patrol the ferries that went from Delaware to New Jersey. Those seas would get to about 30 to 40 feet and that was a ride, and it was fun, but it was on a 300+ foot ferry too, not this little guy lol. I earned my sea legs pretty fast on those crossings!!!!!!

  • Thanks for the comment Ash, sounds like you’ve had a fun life as well
