Spent 20 years in the Navy. Most of the swells in this video are pretty common fare in storms at sea. I've seen far bigger. We went thru a class 5 super-typhoon between Hong Kong & Singapore once. The bow of the ship dipped under the water so frequently we felt like a submarine. I remember being on the bridge and hitting one swell so hard (or it hit us so hard) that part of the metal railing broke off and went flying past the bridge wing. But the REAL scary part of a storm happens below-decks, under the waterline, where most of the berthing & engineering spaces are. Some waves hit so hard you'd swear a whale ran into the side of the ship, right next to your bed (rack). You learn to sleep thru it. Sort of. Fun times. Glad to be retired :)

The images of the oil rig (#4) reminded me of what my father went through back in 1965. Dad (Don Gillespie) was under contract with Shell Oil and was a diesel engineer. He was stationed in The Netherlands while a drilling rig (Transworld 58) was being built and helped in its construction. It was a large, semi-submersible rig and upon completion, the rig was connected to the world's largest ocean-going tug boat (a Dutch ship) for it's voyage to Angola, Africa (where it would eventually drill for oil off the coast of Province of Cabinda). Dad was on the rig from the time it left Rotterdam along with a small crew to make sure everything stayed lashed down and tight for the voyage. He was an old US Navy man that served in the So. Pacific in WWII on a mine sweeper so he was not unfamiliar with bobbing around in the water like a top but they hit one of those big storms in the North Sea and he said it almost tore the drilling rig in half. At one point, he was going between buildings on the deck and was almost washed overboard, fell and broke his arm but he stayed on deck. After a few days, they finally made it out of the North Sea and had a fairly uneventful cruise down to Dakar, Senegal where they had to put in for repairs which took a few weeks. They eventually made it to Angola (at the time it was a colony of Portugal) where the Dutch were in a hurry to disconnect from the rig and get out of Angolan waters. This was because there were about 400 years of bad blood between the Dutch and the Portuguese over the possession of Angola. Dad thought it was amusing how the Dutch were behaving in their haste to get out of there. A side note, my mother and I eventually joined my father in Angola and lived in Luanda for a year, a great experience for a 15 year old.

@nigelft Yıl önce
The Bay of Biscay holds a tragic memory for me ... Many years ago, now almost in decades, an acquaintance of mine was offered a trip, from England, to the Mediterranean, on, iirc, his father-in-law's small sailing yaught, along with his Brother-in-Law. At the time he was only in his early 20's, but even I knew that, him having no sailing experience, made him a liability, as even I knew how rough seas can get, especially in certain parts of the North Sea/Atlantic ... He went anyway, despite other people telling him not to, as well. Sadly, it came as no surprise (abet still shocking ...) that the yaught all three were on, disappeared around the Bay of Biscay. An Air/Sea Rescue search was launched, but all that was spotted was one of those inflatable life rafts, except floating inverted. No other wreckage was found. I've been to many a funeral service, and even burials - not least my kind mum's, nearly 2 years ago - but few haunts me as much as that service/memorial for him, essentially a funeral, with no coffin. I asked an uncle of mine, whom, amongst many things, did time, as an engineer, on a Ore-Bulk-Oil (OBO) ship, which are pretty damn big (70,000 - 180,000 t DWT is about the normal range, with lengths easily over 820ft). When I told him about my friend, he described a storm he experienced, in roughly the same area, on a OBO, of about 90,000t DWT, in which he described as being like "being tossed around like a toy boat in a bathtub", and how close he came to being violently sea-sick. Given the size of waves he was describing (not least the green water was being sent over the bow), it wasn't surprising that Adam simply disappeared, without trace ... it literally felt like he stepped off into the void, never to return ...

Me too I sailed mostly on tankers in the N.M.U. going from the Alesska Terminal in Valdez to P.T.P. in Porto Arrmulles in Panama. I know I didn't spell those two places correctly but I'm too lazy to look up the correct spelling right now. The last ship I was on the BT San Diego, the rudder stock sheared completely in two. After drifting 12 days we finally hooked up to two tugs and were towed in to Southwest Marine Shipyard in San Pedro While the ship was in the yard the city of L.A. contacted me about an application I had filled out earlier I went for the interview and was hired. I had 13 years in the Union then,I worked for the city for 28 years retiring a couple years ago. My time shipping out in the Merchant Marines was the best time of my life I loved it and would have never quit if the bottom didn't fall out of the American Merchant Marine.

I was in one (more than one) worse than this in the USN in the 90s. I believe it was '97 we were near Australia's east coast but still considerably out to sea... and going through a hurricane (Georgez? sp). The flight deck was 70' above the water line and the waves were routinely going 30 or 40 feet over it. One night about midnight we caught a sideways wave that tipped us beyond 45 degrees. Luckily almost everyone was in the bunks or secured because only one guy got hurt (broken arm). Two helos came loose in the hangar bay and rolled round a while. Somewhat humorously (in retrospect) the journalists had a brand new large printer capable of producing books and stuff automated. They were very proud of it... but none one welded it to the deck or bolted it soo... it goes crashing through false bulkhead and got smashed up. It was so crazy.

The Great Lakes are ponds compared to the world's oceans, but they still sank many a ship & freighter over a couple of centuries. I spent my summers as a child/teen nearby the shore of northern Lake Michigan, and often watched as many storms would appear on the horizon as a widening black line of a front from Wisconsin, even when the mornings and early afternoons had been sunny, warm, and clear sky. You cannot see all of the way across the horizontally narrow big lake, even with powerful binoculars. A nearby resort town celebrated the 4th of July every year by staging a fireworks display over their bay btw breakwalls, but one year a sudden storm on the lake hit just as the volunteer fire crew launched the first firework...lol. The storm front looked JUST like a monster wave in the evening sky, and even curled like a bigly breaker as it approached the shoreline. Everyone in attendance RAN for their lives, but lost much of what they brought along to the huge beach to watch the fireworks, from the gale+ force winds. Further inland a couple of F2 tornados touched down but fortunately only in forested and farmland areas.

Those ships refered to as search and rescue are in general not out there to look for boats in distress. They are supply- and standby vessels for the oilrigs. They have big capacity when it comes to manouverability, towing, firefighting and handling rough weather. They are the lifeline for the rigs, and their safety net if things go bad.
@a.karley4672 Yıl önce
Having spent about 15 years of my life on oil rigs, I've had more than enough occasions to wonder just how we'd perform an abandon-to-standby vessel operation. When the weather is "up" enough to preclude abandonment by helicopter, it's also far too "up" to consider basket transfer to a standby vessel, leaving the lifeboats the only option. Similarly, transfer from lifeboat to another vessel would be beyond sanity, so you'd be looking at being towed into harbour. There's a reason the lifeboats are stocked with food and water for the full complement for several weeks. And don't forget the vomit-suppression pills too - if they reduce it from vomiting every 5 minutes to vomiting every quarter hour, that's a big improvement.

Turning to the side or going stern (rear) first is the worst thing u can do. We've been side on to huge wave due to the gear being on the bottom I can tell u it's scary when the trawl boom goes half under water & the other side is basicly straight up in the air.

Took a cruise on a fairly small ship (128 passenger limit) we were heading south from Ketchikan down to Seattle. In the area North of Vancouver Island where we were exposed to the ocean we ran into a heavy storm. My wife and I went down below for dinner. Looking out the windows as we rode up and down the waves we watched the water run well over the top of the windows. My wife started feeling feeling sick and went up to our room. Our table which normally seated eight was left with me and the oldest couple on the boat eating as much as we wanted. Heading back up I checked the lounge area. Water climbing over the bow was running under the doors and an area set off to the side for refreshments also had been damaged. The storm eased off some but as we reached what I thought was sheltered water behind Vancouver Island we seemed to slow down and I decided to go back to our room to see how my wife was doing. She seemed to be fine and she asked me why we turned around and i just looked at her. What? We turned around. I just shook my head and we both went outside and sure enough she was right. Checked with a crew member who said that the captain changed course to stop fighting the wind and currents that were pushing us back. Storm and all this was the best cruise that I've been on

There was a tiny minesweeper next to us that would actually disappear when the waves hit. Excellent ride.

@maverickfegan Yıl önce
Yes but if the ships engines fail then they cant keep facing the wave and will get hit side on. A rig is built for those waves and will survive, there was a website that lists lost ships, big ships too, it happens all the time, especially where a firm is not spending money on maintenance or have an old ship ready for the scrap yard. The oil industry always has the money to invest. However if you’re helicoptering out then things can get interesting, even with 2 engines. Plenty of icing opportunities.

20m is a fairly common occurrence in the North Sea, I've experienced 28m waves there myself, so all rigs are built for this.
