Default Sportsman 252 Open offshore

Thought I'd post a video of my last boat, a Sportsman 252 Open. We were running back from 60 miles offshore with the autopilot on. Allot of people always Talk about their boats ride, I figured this was a good video to show. This was by far the best riding 25 foot boat I have ever been on. Enjoy...

Those are sloppy 1-2's with an occasional maybe 3 ft. I didn't see any 4 ft seas in that video.

Never ever post video on THT and claim anything other than "it was flat" because it will immediately degenerate into "No way was it XX". Videos always look like smaller seas than what they felt like in the boat. I think that's one of Einstein's lesser known laws of physics.
