Post photos of your boat in big seas here.

Fishing in the Bearing Sea for King Crab ect. I always enjoyed seeing the other boats bashing through the waves. Lets see what you have to share.

Here's mine to share

When I was done with my wheel watch on this Jog we all went out on deck with the Louisville sluggers (baseball bats) and broke the ice. Your looking at three hours of ice in this photo.

Can't really tell what's going on in the photo.

Was this your boat?

LOL hell no ! not our pleasure craft. One of the vessels I worked back in the 80s in the Bearing Sea M/V Cascade. Your looking through a heated spinner window. All the other windows were iced over. That little spinner window is all we had to see out.

OK, thanks.

I was wondering if you wanted pics of us in our boats or any boat.

If you click on and blow up the photos you can see the gist. There has to be 50 pounds of ice and rime on the single stanchion and adjacent lines in that narrow view alone.

On a related note, as an exercise in “literary archeology,” I very recently read Alistair Maclean’s “HMS Ulysses,” his first novel based on experience in a light cruiser on the Murmansk runs in the 2nd European Apocalypse*. Basesd soley on that, no thank you! (Terrible book, btw, don’t bother.)

* - which was strictly speaking not a “world war,” the Anglo-Japanese Pacific conflict being totally unrelated. Eventually historians will get it right after failing for so long.

That’s some serious icing up and can’t imagine what the vessel as a whole would have looked like. I suppose that’s the point where it starts to get dangerous to stability.

Anyway the problem with posting photos is the lack of scale or 3D appreciation in order to size waves. In my photo the seas look to be about 15ft to me, however we measured them that day in the 20-25 ft range. Perhaps video would be more telling.

We're pleasure boaters, in that order. The few times I screwed up and got us into too-big-for-comfort seas, the last thing we had any time for was taking pictures.

Spent plenty of time in rough seas on ships and fishing boats when I was younger. Getting rolled around for days on end is exhausting. I avoid rough conditions whenever possible since I got back in to boating 8 years ago. Fair seas and following winds everyone.

Did someone say video? I'm sure many of you have seen this series of videos I took 3 years ago but I hope you still get a kick out of watching them.







This is where it gets fun. The wave you see knocked me off my feet while I was standing at the helm. It also knocked my anchor light lens off and that's 20' above the water. Some kinda fun, eh?


I actually enjoy being out on a day like this. My wife, not so much, so we usually stay in the slip if the wind is blowing.

My thought exactly. Last spring I screwed up and ended up in really rough seas. I was taking green water over the bow and into my ER vents. Everything that could fall over, slid off, and crash down did. My wife was braced in the salon trying to not fly around the cabin. I was wondering just how strong the attachment was on my helm seat. The LAST thing I was thinking about was trying to get a camera out.

Thats some serious seas to pay attention to.... Are those following seas. Great photo. You get what I was asking to see. We all have a story but not all have the photo. GREAT SHOT !

That last video reminds me of Clarkston, WA two years ago.... Wow the winds on the river roar.... Terrific video thanks for the share.

That sounds like you really got bounced around. Taking water in on the ER vents would concern me.
