Boating Videos to Help You Pass the Time





So you are sitting at work or maybe in a waiting room waiting for your car’s oil to be changed.  You really wish you were on your boat instead.  Since you are not on your boat, why not take this opportunity to pull out your mobile device or log onto your computer and take a look at some cool boating videos.  Here is a collection of what I think are some pretty exciting boating videos that you may enjoy.

Lightning Strikes Sailboat

Okay, so maybe this is the reason why I don’t own a sailboat.  Imagine having your boat tied up to the dock and out of the blue, mother nature chooses it to release some electrical tension.  Maybe it has something to do with that 40 foot lightning rod in the middle!

Yacht Falls Off Trailer

If you have ever had trouble trying to trailer your boat, maybe this will make you feel better.  After all, these guys are supposed to be professionals, right?

Kayaker Fends Off Shark

Have you ever felt like you were being followed?  This guy did and he was right.  The scary part is that he was in kayak a long way from shore and his stalker was a big hammerhead shark!!

Fishermen Jump in Water to Avoid Crash

This one is quite disturbing but it highlights the fact that paying attention while at the helm is of utmost importance.  Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in this incident.

Superfast Canoe

The words canoe and fast are typically not used together in the same sentence.  In this case they are.  This is what happens when someone gets bored and decides to try something new.  Imagine strapping a turbo diesel engine to the back of a long canoe and taking it out for a ride.  Oh, wait . . . you don’t have to imagine it.  Here it is, big rig sound, rolling black smoke and all.

Apache Powerboat Owning the Waves

This is an older video and the quality is not as good as you may be used to but it still gets me excited every time I watch it.  This Apache 41 power boat is catching some serious air as it runs across the huge waves.  It is a must watch.

Chesapeake Cowboys

If you struggle to get your boat into the slip, these guys are gonna make you look bad.  Heck even if you don’t find it that difficult, these guys will still probably make you look bad.  The most exciting boat docking competition there is.  Yes, take a close look.  One of the contestants looks like he is only about 15.

The Cahaba Incident

This is not a video but actually a series of photos taken from a bridge of an incident that occurred in 1979.  A towboat pushing two barges down the flooding Tombigbee river in Alabama gets caught on a bridge and is eventually rolled under the bridge.  It eventually pops up on the other side, rights itself and the captain and crew are actually able to restart the vessel.  Talk about needing a new pair of pants!!

Docking Like a Pro

If you are familiar with tournament fishing, you probably know that there is a time deadline to get your catch back to the dock.  Watch as this captain wastes no time in getting his boat to the dock on time.

Jet Skiing in Canyon

Two Fishing Vessels Crossing the Grey River Bar

These two captains have some serious gonads!  Some people say that I am a bit crazy because I enjoy a little rough water while boating every now and then but this is definitely to the extreme!   Check it out.
