Re: Secrets of the Wave Pilots

Look up/Google both "Tevake", & the book We The Navigators. Both are old (obviously), but have tales & information more in depth on the subject of navigating by feeling specific swell patterns as they pass under a vessel.

There's also more on this via the Polynesian Voyaging Society. And the crew of the vessel "Morning Light", a TP 52, crewed by a group of collegiate sailors (sponsored by Disney), spent some time learning a bit of this from them. As something of a spin off for their preperation for the TransPac. It's on the DVD of the boat's name.

PS: Some of the books are free for download, online.
