These waves might not sound that high for an ocean but it is for Lake Michigan due to the very short wave length/interval. treacherous conditions...
While nowhere near 12-16, some of the roughest weather we've encountered was heading to Vineyard Haven Harbor from Harwich Port, MA... short, steep 6 footers just beat the heck out of us for hours!
