Ah, memories

Reminds me a little of my submarine days. Occasionally the skipper would order a sharp up or down angle just to see how well we were stowed for sea. Usually we would pass the test. Every now and then though a toolbox would go flying by at high speed. We were used to it though. These people clearly have no idea what to do.

PCP will become famous soon enough
That seems to have came out of a funny movie

It is difficult to know what to do when you are dodging pianos and all kinds of stuff. Guess the better is to rush to the cabin and stay there

Regards

Paulo

That reminds me of Operation Windbreak. Our Guided Missile Cruiser was caught in the North Atlantic in a late Autumn storm during the operation and we ran through an occluded front. It took 4 days to get out of that weather!

We experienced 60 kts winds and 50 ft seas. We had 9 kts rung up on the EOT but made only 3 kts good through the water. Any more speed than that caused us to pound, and we didn't want to break her back. We regularly rolled 45 degrees and pitched 15. The biggest roll we took was a shade short of 50 degrees. The fire control radars were designed to detach at 53 and fall overboard to help the ship right itself, and to this day I'm still amazed we didn't lose any of them. Sadly, that ship (and the whole class, now) is no more, having been turned into razor blades.
