Enjoy watching the videos. I have question…during the Atlantic crossing what was the larger swells you encountered?, and when does it become dangerous?
The largest seas we’ve encountered have been around 5 meters/15 ft, and they did happen to be a little dangerous because the sets were close together and breaking. But when you’re 1,000 miles from land there isn’t much you can do except wait it out. In that case Matt tied some lines to trail behind the boat which slowed us down a little and kept us on a more steady course.
