Fun to watch, thanks for sharing that.

Interesting they used 'thru' in the description text. I thought that was a modern version of 'through' from the computer age, didn't realize it was used back in 1938.

I fell in love with boating and fishing in and out of that inlet. What a great post! Thank you.

Wow, haven't seen that since the late 1970's. We used to show that in USCG Aux classes. I seem to remember it as a little shorter version of this one.

It was on film back then, 8mm was it then ? Film was in really bad shape by then.

Cool, thanks for posting.

Thank you for posting. Really nice video. I've seen that inlet sloppy but never that angry. These are my spearfishing grounds and regular inlet heading offshore. Amazing to see it back then and get a view into what things were like/how situations were handled back in the day. I never really though about it until seeing this.

..........sort of reminds of Jupiter inlet on a day with a strong outgoing and a stiff breeze out of the east. Pick your swell and gun it to ride the back of wave in.

I wonder if that happened today, exact same sea conditions but with modern power 300-400hp + torque and hull design how that would play out.

Those single screw boats were probably only running what 100-150hp, except maybe the large FB cruiser may have had twins.

Could and does happen but I'd imagine to a much lesser extent. Faster, more responsive boats would make it much easier to control in these conditions. An inexperienced capt, or anyone for that matter, who timed it wrong could easily end up like many of those in this video.

Yup, as a kid I took some boating safety class (can't remember if it was given by Power Squadron or CG Aux) sometime around 1978-79 and they showed this film.

Yep, I'm thinking some of the boats in the video were only 12knots WOT anyway on a good day, so they may not have been able ever to ride those in the right way.
