Wrong Smack, no hurricane made the one on the west coast flip, just rough weather.
You love to obfuscate.
Okay...here is a snippet from the article you yourself posted...
Not much else is known at this point, other than the fact that the area near Cape Blanco was pummeled by 80 knot winds last week and that it's unlikely we will ever know exactly what happened or why the boat didn't seek shelter in the face of severe weather forecasts.
Look up 80 knots in the Beaufort Scale and tell me what you see.
Here is another snippet from another article that has a bit more detail...
The morning of Dec. 11, the forecast issued by the National Weather Service for the coastal waters between Florence and Cape Blanco, the area north of Cat Shot’s last recorded position, included a storm warning, a warning about hazardous seas, and winds predicted from the south at 50 knots, with gusts to 65 knots. Wind waves were to reach 12 to 15 feet, running into a west swell of 19 feet.
“Waves with a long fetch from the south intersecting with large westerly swells can lead to wave super-positioning,” says Sven Nelaimischkies, meteorologist of the marine program at the Medford, Ore., weather station. “If this happens, 15-foot waves can build to 45 feet or more.”
A month earlier, on Nov. 12, the 440-foot container ship Westwood Pomona was hit by a rogue wave in the same waters, a little farther offshore. The Associated Press reported that a 70-foot wave smashed several windows of the command bridge, injured one crewman, and damaged the ship’s primary electronics, forcing it to put into Coos Bay, Ore., for repairs.
F10-11 winds - but absolutely monstrous waves.
Where exactly is the obfuscation? In any case, there is already a thread for the kind of capsize stuff you're posting. Why don't you go post it in there?
