Blady hell! Now that's the kind of sea I don't want to get in. Amazing pictures! So it seems the port holes got blown in by the water force!

Really good pictures. Had a few ships come into our port with damage caused by waves.

Great pics - love 'em.

I went through a couple of situations like this in the Navy on a Spruance-class destroyer.

Waves over 40 feet tall submerged the bow, ripped fire hoses off their fittings and flattened the life rails to the deck. The whole ship shuddered with every wave impact. We had to wear seatbelts at our watchstations. Although we were half afraid the bow would break off, it was kind of a fun experience.

At one time, we were steaming with an older ship that had riveted hull plates, and we had to turn away from the waves because she was springing her rivets from the impact of running into the waves. Going parallel to those waves is much worse from a comfort standpoint. The worst though is quartering the waves, because you go up and down at the same time as you're rolling side-to-side - tough to eat or keep your food down when that's going on.

That is so very, very cool.

Doesn't make me regret not following the family tradition of working at sea though!
