This would have been a good chance to get some first hand footage in the storm but obviously our camera man needed to be sure his face was the main focus of the camera.

Hard to tell about the wind but the sea state didn't look that bad.

I rode out a storm with 60-70 Kt winds and 12' seas once. It is nice having a plumb bow to slice the waves. I saw a lot of round bottom boats in trouble and a 48' sink. All 9 on board were rescued. Not a fun time as it lasted over 12 hours.

I went to the North Atlantic on a 600 foot destroyer (USS Scott) and came back with no lifelines forward of the superstructure. Even the blast sheild between the foward gun and missile launcher was bent back to the deck. We had vomit stained foot prints half way up the bulheads throughout the ship. Now that was a storm!
