That's a container ship .... funny cuz they would be up high above us ..... then in a few moments ... we'd be high looking down on them! This was taken the day after a big storm, but the swells continued for some time.We were bringing the Trawler back from France to Maine. Too early in the season for the northern route, and we got into the same situation as the "perfect Storm"..... two fronts came together out there it was touch and go for a bit. The ship was a north sea trawler from Holland, and tough as nails. Even so, one rogue wave knocked us over on our portside beam ends ,..... I thought we were going over. My watchmate woke up in the bunk on opposite side of the foc'sl from his own bunk ... not a scratch on him. I was wedged in, fortunately. Fun fun fun ....

O' I would love to be out there...look at those swells, love it, I am such an adrenaline junkie for that stuff! Too wild, nature power, it's just amazing.  That barge looks like he's pretty well weighted in order to handle those waves; still he's rock'n & rollin! Great picture, feel free to post more.

thanks for sharing!

"I had to replace my sheeve on both sides and really struggled to get the bolts out. Once I had them out, each was bent thus the challenge. I ended up stripping one or two of the hex bolts and used an angle grinder to square off the head of the bolt…"
