soul searcher reverand,
I have it on sirius, on the boat too.

I think that is actually the semester at sea boat. it was a good show the hundreds of students sliding from one side of the salon to the other was incredible. talk about a free surface problem!
If I'm right the name of the boat is the explorer not voyager.

soul searcher Is this the cruise boat that all the students were on in the bearing sea?
I watched a show on the the weather channel about it a couple of weeks ago.

CharlieCobra They suffered engine failure, hence the beam seas. The extra long rolls to starboard was from windage on that floating brick.

bestfriend V thats very good, they're out one way or another! As long as the 24 hour ice cream bar is working, I'm cool with it.

Neises That would be a great time to hit the buffet, probably not too crowded.

I assume that was some sort of test or drill with no passengers(?). Find it hard to believe a modern cruise liner would be surprised by a cyclone. Google gives 581,000 links to the video, but not much info.

sevseasail That's a good video...

I know that those are bad conditions all around but it looks to me the seas are coming mostly very close to the beam. Am I seeing right?
Anyway I never liked those ships "to tender for my taste" I rather seeing it spring right back (regardless of confort).
Does anyone here knows what the "g" (height of center of gravity) is on one of those? I know..... it depends on the state of "cargo" but,.. range?
It really doesn't matter how big you are; in the midle of the ocean we're all tiny.
