That made me sea-sick just watching the video. I just don't see how those tankers stay upright in those kinda seas.

On YouTube, they are saying Keith on the Wizard (actually it was his brother Mouse), took a wave that destroyed the wheelhouse. Had to call the Coast Guard to tow them back to port.

Pa told of a time on a heavy cruiser in a typhoon during the Korean War when he had to climb the main mast to fix the radio antennae that was taken out after a big wave. Ship was rolling 45 degrees.
Rock and roll!

Reminds me of a few years back when I went deep sea fishing out of South Padre after a night of bad storms. Was a rough day, even the captain got sick barf We still caught a few, but I said never again!

Yup!


You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

I went on a cruise prior to Covid. It was as rough as I care to be in the ocean, 60 mph winds and the entire front deck was off limits. The waves weโ€™re crashing over the front deck of a big cruise boat. I was sick darn near the entire trip,

Spent my early career working offshore on small research vessels in the 150โ€™ to 300โ€™ size class, rough seas suck as much as it looks like it does. Iโ€™m glad to to have people doing that for me now.

Thatโ€™s why everything you get from China has those little silicon packages in them that say do not eat.

Back in 1977 we were coming back from Rota Spain on the U.S.S. El Paso after a 6 month Med cruise and had to travel thru a Hurricane that created waves like this. I worked in Combat Information center ( CIC ) right behind the bridge on the 06 level. I asked and got permission to go to the Bridge and watch some of these waves happening in real time. Just absolutely awesome but scary at times. We did have a Wave break on the bridge windows while I was up there. Some crazy stuff right there.

Looks like Tawakoni coming out of Wolf with 40 mph winds out of the North. Although I don't have a windshield wiper

I went out ocean fishing once off the coast of Oregon....and that cured me of wanting to that again....and the waves weren't even remotely close to those. I stuck to buying the fresh catch off the boats that came into the harbor at Newport or Coos Bay.
