Wow! Look at the size of the seas!

Check out this video: Stranded Cruise Ship Hit By Huge Waves - Fox News Video - FoxNews.com

That is a serious storm. How big are those seas? I would estimate a solid 40+ footers. Maybe 50+ with some that appear even larger. Don't you know there was a lot of puking on that cruise ship!! How would you like to be in a sailboat in that!??

Must be one of the Antarctic mini cruise ships.. Also, looked like lines crossing the gap between the (chopper? another ship?) and the cruise ship...

Those are pricey trips.. I imagine there weren't too many happy customers.

Wasn't Jessica Watson in seas that big during her circumnavigation in her S&S 34?

I can't imagine. The sea is no joke. If the waves are long enough I guess you just float over them, but wow.

It seems that most pictures and video do not capture waves effectively... this most certainly does!

Nice movie. Not so nice for the passangers

Some movies with fishermen. I have a huge respect for these guys.
Some nice Celtic music too

The CN Ferryboats between NS and Newfoundland encounter seas like this quite often. ... and yes you need hipboots inside when this happens. :-o
