Holy Crap video: Fishing Boats In Rough Sea

Reminded me of Dr. Johnson on the subject of sailors - all of the quotes below are from Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson:

No man will be a sailor who has contrivance enough to get himself into jail; for being in a ship is being in a jail, with the chance of being drowned.

A ship is worse than a gaol. There is, in a gaol, better air, better company, better conveniency of every kind; and a ship has the additional disadvantage of being in danger.

Men go to sea, before they know the unhappiness of that way of life; and when they have come to know it, they cannot escape from it, because it is then too late to choose another profession; as indeed is generally the case with men, when they have once engaged in any particular way of life.


  1. It's amazing the captain can keep this thing upright.

  2. This would be my WORST NIGHTMARE!! These little boats are amazingly sea worthy however...

  3. I was seasick right off, just watching it. Then I settled down and just jumped ship. Drowning put me out of my misery!

  4. I found your website perfect for my needs. Thanks for sharing the great ideas. Whole article is too good and well written.
