It may handle the inlet, but everyone inside would die of heat stroke.

Not sure why he let off the gas, but that's a luck skipper.

Wow, lucky they didn't loose power. Pucker factor was very high.

Solution there to just hit it at 30 and hope you can skip off the crests?

The solution at that inlet, or any of several is to wait for the tide to change...it would have been perfectly fine on an incoming tide. I waited it out at Jupiter Inlet more than once.

No, that's definitely not the solution.

The bow just plowed like it didn't have any buoyancy or lift, i would not expect that to happen even in those conditions.

Wow .. Lucky Captain there... Thank goodness nobody was thrown from the boat...... Why did the boat just seem to stop in between crests ?? Did he let off the throttles in fear of submarining the bow ??

Would have a monohull post holed and capsized? Lucky dude either way. Seems he came in hot and was just going to go at his own speed instead of timing the waves.

Yep. The waves on the other side don't look as steep or as tall. Run in on that side w/tabs up and motors trimmed out a bit. Might still take a little green water but nowhere near what he took in the vid. Looks like the cockpit was nearly swamped when he turned. Lucky sob for sure.

The Bite Me is run by a very experienced captain who runs charters out of Jupiter on a daily basis. Just goes to show you how fast things can go bad. Glad they were OK.
With all the rain we've had the outgoing tides have been really strong... be careful out there.

It looked as if he pulled off the throttle for some reason... He was basically in neutral.. Hence, the wave coming from the stern picking up and nose diving the boat.. Very lucky..

Having no experience with catamarans, I have to ask...
Is there no way to get the bow up when running a catamaran by using a little extra throttle?

My experience is in monohulls with either a large amount of bow flare (30 & 33’ Grady White) and small center consoles with tons of buoyancy and light bows (several Dougherty-designed whalers)
