What would you do if you seen a wave like that approaching you in a boat--
a. bend over and try to smootch your booty goodbye?

b. say **** with it , aim your boat directly at the wave and scream at the top of your lungs BONZAIII!!!

c. say **** with it , position your boat in a manner as to surf your way to valhalla with the wave ?

d. say **** with it , jump outa your boat for the body surf experiance you've been waiting for ?

e. if a gorgeous woman is around , uh --go out in style?

f. get that last cast in with your favorite iron before oblivion ?---ya never know!!

Remember the Fish'n Fool? Out of San Diego...It went down with a rogue wave..unfortunately quite a few died..the cook and a passenger survived...they swam, with the aid of some debris to San Martin Island. The boat actually rolled before sinking....

I remember watching a Storm series show on the weather channel about a father and son that were fishing near the coast and a rogue wave left them and their boat several hundred feet on the side of a mountain. I don't recall where they were fishing and the actual name of the show, but I would love to get it, any help out there?

I wrote the same thing about the perfect storm when I forwarded this to a friend of mine.

i would attempt all of the above but would also add option G:

Donning a life vest, and getting a death grip on the epirb, and then kiss my ##### goodbye.

I really don't know what one would do here. What can you do?
