This is the terrifying moment a boat is smashed head on by a monster wave - forcing the craft to travel through the wave - before bursting out the back of it to safety. The 48ft pilot vessel was pummelled by the enormous breaking wave as violent storms battered the UK coastline over the festive period. Incredibly the boat's two-man crew from Safe Haven Marine had deliberately taken it out in the horrendous Force 11 storm to put it through its paces in Cork Harbour in Ireland.
