Except when the rudder breaks...but I digress....

As for multi-directional waves, isn't that what a confused sea is? Waves either stirred up in multiple directions by rotation due to a TD or hurricane, or waves bouncing off landmasses, etc.? Seems plausible to me in a crazy storm situation.

Along those lines, I'm still interested to hear the rest of the story on Nereida's capsize off Cape Horn. A JSD was in the mix - but it's not clear how and when.
