A Gentle Lake for Gentle People

Here's a Summer storm that hit the West side of Lake Michigan off Kenosha on 9/12/13. These storms, when they occur at night, have been responsible for the loss of many ships--large and small and are difficult to outrun even when visible during daylight. Good luck and safe sailing.
"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathrustra

Re: A Gentle Lake for Gentle People

I remember sitting (well back) at the entrance to Holland and watching a 40' coast guard boat 1/4 mile out disappear completely from view as it dropped in the troughs.

They went out, picked a wave and high tailed it back in. Online, it was saying 30' waves and I could believe it.
