I think he was boasting also. I don't believe that they had experienced 95 mph winds, or 70 ft. seas, nor headed for the eye. And regarding the southeast quadrant, that's not where you want to be either, it's the southwest quadrant that is safest (my mistake in earlier post). But he did seem to be one who wanted to challenge storms a bit, based on his and other crewmates statements. And being at sea during a hurricane doesn't mean you have experienced a hurricane either. But maybe he began to believe his own sea stories....I don't know.
