And that's nothing compared to "the perfect storm" they had back in the early 80's that the book was written about. I read somewhere that if "the perfect storm" would have hit one week earlier, the whole city of Boston would have been flooded due to the tide differences.

I expect to see Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves out there on surfboards!

When I first joined the CG, the first time I went out to the ocean it was in 30' seas. Never been so sick in my entire life. Turns my stomach upside down just thinking about it. :sick:

I experienced a hurricane somewhere in the Atlantic on the USS Enterprise several years ago. You don’t feel the waves that bad on such a huge ship, but it was pretty cool watching the forward flight deck cameras from Central Control. The waves were crashing over the bow like it was a little fishing boat!

I can’t begin to imagine how scary it must have been for people crossing oceans before the age a satellite weather forecast.

yo shipmate rusty,, i served aboard the USS Chicago a guided missle cruiser, we caught the brunt of a typhoon once, it buried the bow in water and shuddered the entire ship as it broke free, the ship would vibrate violently as the screws were exposed then we would roll port and starboard... its more than a adventure.. its no sleep for two days and nights and promising god you wont get drunk in the phillipines if he will keep you alive and afloat.... ok some promises are harder to keep...

LOL!

You would be suprised how many wimps were crying about being sea sick on a carrier. Even in a hurrican we didn't rock that much. I always felt for you guys in the smaller ships.

The funny thing is I used to dream about being free from the Navy and getting off that %$#$% ship, and now I spend all my time dreaming about being on the river and wishing I had a boat worthy of chassing TUNA!

Life is funny.

rusty i served from 74 to 75 on the USS Hancock and when they decomissioned that old carrier i was sent to the Chicago. It was a smoother ride on the Hanna, i went on 3 west pac cruises in 4 years and couldnt wait to get out. now i would give anything for one more cruise... its a crazy thing this love of the sea, perhaps i inhaled too much haze gray paint or stack gas, but i miss those days. jocose
