Small Vessel Handling on Rough Seas

Footage of handling a small RIB Zodiac with a 90 HP outboard in larger seas just inside Tofino. This is offered as a tutorial only, we usually stay in calmer waters for practical training! There certainly is a trick to know about what to watch for and how to try and land a boat when caught out in the “rough stuff”. Enjoy, but try not to get seasick.

Doug John Jr after SVOP class

Doug John Jr of Ehattasaht First Nation took SVOP class at Seaworthy Maritime in Zeballos in 2010. I met up with Doug in the spring of May 2011 and he was kind enough to provide pictures and stories about what he did with this certification. Nice job, Doug! Local Fish guiding, a great father and young professional member in the community. Happy fishing Doug.
