Check out this link. Look at the wave height at 4am this morning... 54 feet!!! NDBC - Station 44141

Unreal. Remember, that is only the average top 1/3... Individual waves may be much higher!!! And look at the size of that storm - goes all the way down to the carib.

Wow. Perfect storm kinda stuff.

Wasn't Paragon planning to transit this area soon?

There have been some monstrous storms in the N.Atlantic this year. It seems like almost every time I looked at the Wfax charts this winter there was another big steep-gradient low heading across to Europe. The only positive with this weather pattern is that maybe it will reduce the number of hurricanes this summer if it persists.

I simply cannot imagine surfing down the side of a 50 foot wave, repeatedly. Wow.
Oh, you mean like THIS? However, it's twice 50 feet, so you'd only have to do it half as often!
Fun, fun, fun, 'till Daddy takes the T-Bird away.
