Nasty day off the coast of France...

En un mar picado las Imágenes de este video son Impresionantes - YouTube

I haven't seen conditions like these since I was a 17-year-old kid in the U.S. Navy, cruising aboard the U.S.S. Newport News (CA-148). We were in the same area and I was sure that I was going to die. Our ship, which measured 762-long took a horrendous beating, split several seams, and a 3-inch dual mount gun was ripped from the bow when we slammed into a wave estimated at more than 100 feet. Sure wouldn't want to be there in my sailboat.

Enjoy,

Gary

Nasty, nasty! My goal is to avoid finding out about such conditions at the personal level.

yah,,, The Perfect Storm was a big joke to me...A prime example of what happens when you let Hollywood have literary license to try to make it real.
Of course the scare factor was pretty high for the land lubbers in the theater

Hey Travlineasy
When were you on the Newport News? My brother sailed on her during the Cuban Missle crisis. Were you there then?

John,

I was aboard her from January 1958 through September 1960. It was an incredible ship and I recently read where it was being cut up for scrap metal. Seems like such a waste to me.

Cheers,

Gary
