Post Bullet Physics Cloth Sail and Buoyancy Demo

This is pretty cool. While I was browsing the demo section of the Bullet Physics forums I came across this little project somebody is working on. It shows a boat that is physically simulated to react when waves hit it. The waves are not physics based water, just the boat's buoyancy and the way it reacts to the water. In another video the author added a physics based cloth sail to the boat making it look more realistic. Check out the video's below. I can't wait until we start to see stuff like this implemented into games on a larger scale.
