Amazing !!  Must be totally crazy in those conditions   %%
I would LOVE to see details of how the watertight hatches were constructed.

Very realistic and excellent filming - particularly in the prevailing conditions.  The mate should get his knuckles (or something) rapped for failing to stow the mooring ropes below; particularly the aft one that is dangling over the starboard prop.

Amazing video. Some of those shots were very realistic filmed in slo-mo. H

Hats off to the guy for venturing out in such poor weather.

Excellent filming and a super model. Not sure I would risk it even with one of my naff boats  :-)

Stunning video!

It can be nicely observed that during the final part of the video where the model AZIZ is heading back to the shore with a following stern sea is the most dangerous situation of the whole ride.
Even so for the real vessels as capsizing accidents might happen when the ship is on a wave crest in a stern sea with a wave length almost equal to the length in the waterline when it starts to roll into resonance.
