    Navy ship in heavy weather

    Want to know what it's like in heavy seas? I've seen 30 ft seas, it ain't fun,,,,at all. This ship is the same size as the one I was on.
    We were tough as nails I tell ya.

    I was on the DD873,,, 390 ft long,, 40 feet wide,, 3400 tons
    we took 47 degree side rolls right outside of the entrance of the Mediterranean Sea,,

    I remember them saying, the captain is NOT supposed to drive the ship like that,,
    there is evasive steering techniques that avoid the front to back roll,, it is way TOO great,,,

    The front back roll must be over 30 degrees,, that ain't ever supposed to happen,,
    unless you are just showboating for the camera,,,

    The ship in the video is 509 feet long, and 66 feet wide,,, 9000 tons

    The video reminds me of the guy jumping his JD Series 1 off of humps in his back yard,,,
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    We went through a Tropical Storm on the way to Haiti in '93, you Navy guys sure get a kick of a bunch of hurling Marines. Worse was we were on the USS Tortuga, a semi flat bottom ship.

    I find myself wondering whatever made some human being think that a 4000+ ton hunk of metal would be able to not sink in heavy seas? Sorta like who decided it was a good idea to open an oyster and suck that snot down? These and other burning questions.....

    In 1967 I was on one of the last Diesel submarines still in service. We were caught in a really bad typhoon in the pacific. Diesel subs were not allowed to submerge in a storm, we had to ride it out. We were rolling over as much as 70 degrees. Any further, we would have sunk if the free flooding tank holes would have come out of the water.

    One roll sent me head first into the trim & drain manifold in the control room. I was the operator. Busted three teeth. Nasty. We all did our jobs & no one freaked out, but we had three chief petty officers on board that were on war patrols in the big war & one said it was worse than some of the depth charges he went thru. Mother nature has no mercy.

    People ask why I don't go on cruise ships. I tell them been there, done that & just smile at them. When I see videos of these fools that go to the shore during a hurricane to look at waves I can only shake my head and say how stupid they are & unknowing the risk.

    That storm I was in tore out our Sonar system that was housed in the bow below the water line. Ripped off everything. The only thing left was a bunch of hanging wires. We had to dry dock in the Philippines for emergency repairs along with a Destroyer that had one of its props torn right off the shaft. Something I will never forget.

    Makes me wonder how ships in those rough seas don't just split in 2 with all that pounding, and to make them that strong, they can still float.

    In some of the clips, there were seamen on deck with waves crashing over the bow?

    Also in the less harsh conditions ... did I see a Santa Claus on deck with a bunch of seamen too?

    Nice video.
