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  :-)

My models are not nice, clean and ship-shape. They be mucky, grubby, rusty and smelly.

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.
