    Not that I wish to challenge you Ron, however there is one subject that you have missed in the Life boat trilogy.

    What about a launching. Thundering down the ramp and that huge splash as it hits the water......

    Great idea chaps and one I did consider.....But unfortunately the Severn class Lifeboat was not designed for slipway launches, but only moorings or pontoon use.

    As far as I am aware there is no slipway lifeboat kit available......I could be wrong mind. I would certainly like a crack at one, for sure!

    Thanks for the suggestion....Apologies to all for resurrecting this thread.

    Cheers Ken. It's nice to see these coming in with the tide again.

    I hope this one in particular will be of some help with your own creation of a rough sea.

    Google Images is a good place to browse wave formations.

    You seem to have nailed the rough sea perfectly - in fact, I'm not at all sure I've seen better...
