Heavy weather

Joy and I just got back from two months in the Bahamas and we were able to avoid almost all of the heavy weather because of all the wonderful internet and satellite technology available today. I'm too old to get beat up anymore. My worst experience was in the fall of 1984. I was on a 41' Morgan ketch and I got caught up in a Noreaster with 65 mph winds and 16' seas. The storm came out of nowhere and it was the scariest time of my life.
I think most of us do all we can to avoid storms, however, if you boat long enough, you will likely have a scary time or two at sea.
I thought it would be fun if members would share some of their toughest times at sea, how they handled the situation, and what they might do different if a similar situation ever happened again.
Care to share???
