Default Greenpeace ********- boat chase

There's a great part at 3:30 where the little rib gets swamped. The bigger grey ship is sweet. During the first intercept, it goes from about 40kts to dead stopped in 1 boatlenght... talk about throwing on the brakes!

I couldn't enlarge the video, anybody know where there's a full-screen version of this chase:

Wow. Nice video. It's insane how fast that large boat stops and turns.

Unbelievable how that police boat handles/brakes/accels for something that big.

Those nitwits are lucky the cops stopped them with the boat and not bullets - could be terrorists masquerading as whale-huggers.

I've always loved watching the old films of them driving their Zodiac in front of a whaling ship armed with explosive harpoons, and wishing "Please, shoot! Just this once."
