Waterspouts are an interesting meteorological phenomenon. They’re essentially small-scale tornadoes that form over the ocean. They get their name by sucking up water and creating spout-like formations. While they’re nowhere near as dangerous or destructive as standard tornadoes, it’s still a good idea to steer clear of them.
What you absolutely should not do is head right into the middle of a waterspout. That goes double if you happen to be driving a small boat…like the gentleman of questionable sanity in this video.
I guess this makes for a good video, but sailing through one of these is absolutely not a good idea. We’ll just leave the craziness to him.
