STANNAVFORLANT Exercise April 1976. Caribbean to Halifax, Nova Scotia. At about 600 miles east of Cape Cod, A Perfect Storm Nor'easter: Seas 45+ feet. Sustained winds 90 knots. Water temperature 34 F. "Weather Decks are secured. Life expectancy is about 4 minutes if overboard. We cannot, repeat cannot, pick you up", announced over 1MC. I'm on a relatively small WWII Class Destroyer (DD-840). "Disband Exercise. Break Formation. Implement Heavy Seas Procedures. Ride it out!", ordered to all ships from Command. I'm only an Ensign, USN, standing JOOD watch up on the bridge, but wondering, "OK. What would be the other option?"  But the often overlooked, unacknowledged truth was clear enough though. From the moment a ship first slips into the sea, until it's scrapped, sold, or sunk, our constant, unremitting enemy to it is the sea itself.

+The Demize No way to do it without risking the entire ship - could roll over. That's why they give the warning, secure (prohibit access) all weather decks (outside of the ship), and issue it as an order. Storms at sea are no joke and deadly serious.

The ocean scares the fuck out of me, I guess it's the fear of not knowing what's around me

DUH but. I would fear the water more then a shark. At least in the short term. Drowning would be a terrible way to die.

when I was on the uss Saratoga back in '67, we hit a storm like this crossing the north Atlantic in winter.  waves were rolling down the flight deck & the flight deck is 60ft above the water line...  the plus side,  there was no chow line, walked right up & served myself , great!

I fished the Bearing sea king crab--in 1980-81--sister boats lost 23 men to the ocean that year. A sister boat lost a man and got him back aboard in 3-4 minutes. he die of hipo with the water at 33 degrees. Come join our memories. Please hats off to our fishermen---everywhere.

Guys... it's not a fake... It's been filmed for the movie "oceans" in french brittany from an helicopter. The warship is the "latouche treville" frigate. The rescue ship is "abeille bourbon". The sea is rough here, but habitually you won't see any ships in such conditions, that was just for the movie.
