Re: Monster seas

It makes me sea sick just looking at it!

In my lifetime, I hope to never see anything even close to this first hand.

Re: Monster seas

You will never see seas that bad if you sail in the right season.

Re: Monster seas

You know those TS and Typhoons you guys get in the Carib and the Eastern Seaboard, ever wondered what happens when they cross the Atlantic? There is a reason the West Coasts of France and Ireland are rather craggy.

We have a large copy of this in our hallway.

Re: Monster seas

So what is the point? Is that if you don't a war ship learn to check the weather? The other point seemed to be don't sail next to the shore rocks during a storm.
