Comments

Sloppy: Imagine doing this in the 1600s with no ballast tank and a wooden hull?

Vivian Pough: You won't find me on a ship in the middle of the ocean feeling insignificant in comparison.

Rock Roll: Ocean doesn’t go hungry.

bobby bousche': Look to be about consistent 40-50 foot waves yah?

rohan bajaj: i was so uncomfortable watching the second video

zeli maiwand: Wow so scary but great job

Willem: I live in The Netherlands near the North Sea and in winter when i know the waves are big because of a strong wind, around 6 or 7 Beaufort (any higher is too dangerous), I walk to the end of the breaker at night to experience the height, force and roar of the wave when it slams onto the breaker. There is a land based buoy on there to guide the ships into the harbour where I hide behind when i see that a wave gets too big. You'll hear, see and feel a wall of over 3 meters of water being deflected which you know can wash you into the sea. It's awe inspiring, and quite scary. Can't imagine, (but would like to) how it will be like to be pounded by 20 meter waves on a vessel like yours. The first time would be pretty overwhelming probably lol. Thank you for the great uploads!

Sabina Cruz: If I were on that ship I would be very asleep. Ain’t no way I’d want to be awake to be seeing and feeling all of that.

BIG BEAR: Where’s a surf 🏄 board when you need one

januastoria: Very curious to learn Bigwavaster1 how the ship doesn’t sink in this scary storm. What keeps it from sinking? Thanks a million in advance

Jackie Bayliss: ♥️Mother Nature

Michal Golib: 4:15 I love this dude

Stevieboy74: Sorry if this is a dumb question but is there ever a serious risk that the vessel could flip?

daman 71: That's not horrifying, that's just plain annoying weather, wouldn't be able to have my morning cuppa in that annoying wash lol...

typical wank: Now I’m seasick

Josh James Kiwi Bushman: she be a cruel mistress ye old ocean

Ben Williams: It feels like sometimes the ship isn't coming back when it goes so far over...I served on Destroyers in the Navy and this weather used to scare me at times. Especially when you see the plates on the hull below the waterline bending and moving. They are supposed to, but holy god it's unsettling! It's also exhausting trying to move around when the ship is all over the show like this, and I have seen people in bed on drips due to such awful seasickness!

Rodrigo Zauza: This is for strong people! In another life, I think I died drowned in a storm like this ... #fear

Cathy Mcconnaughey: Nope!!!
