Cool Tested 33' Powerplay today

Pay close attention to small craft advisories. No boat was big enough for today's ocean. Waves were breaking offshore at about 12'-15', getting out the cut meant traversing even larger breaking waves. Dan the man Weinstein's experience really shone through. He never choked once ! The boat at one point actually got tubed as a huge wave was breaking over her. No kidding, these guys are trucking futz.

The boat came through unscathed, however the passengers nerves were a little rattled. Everyone came away with a brand new respect for the ocean, and oh yeah, Dan's driving abilities.

My hat is off to Stephan for having the nad's to go, and Kevin O. for his flawless work in rigging her.

Did you ever reach the ocean or just turn around in the cut?
