That looks like the wave my wife was describing to me as she gazed to the stern of our boat the first time we got caught in storm. (Yes, I know we were only in 5' seas, but you'd never know it from the stories she told.)

Re: iling Into A Storm (img)

That wave bites.

Dialogue for skipper on the radio with local weather expert:

"Does your wave bite?"

..."No, my wave does not bite."

"We're sinking... your wave just chewed up my boat and spit it out!"

..."That vas not mine wave!"

Re: iling Into A Storm (img)

Has anyone else noticed who the original poster was? And anyone else remember the thread "Stop waving at me!" ? With apologies before hand to the flyingwelshman, the caption should be "STOP WAVING ME"

Here's a little fable:
You see all of those castles on the hills?

I made those castles! I designed them; quarried the stone; laid the bricks and mortar and built the strongest, most beautiful castles in the realm.

But do they call me ‘Welshy the builder"?

No!

And do you see all of those ships in the harbour?

I built those! I designed them, harvested the timbers, laid the keels, wove the canvas, ran the rigging. They are the best found craft in the seven seas.

But do they call me “Welshy the shipwright"?

No!

But you screw one sheep…..

That whole 'waving' thing was discounted when someone pointed out the hypocricy in my signature.

I'll give this person an A in creativity on a good use of a photoshop programme.
