Can't say "us" sailors don't know anything about getting airborne...*smile*. Sometimes I love my job!

Unfortuanatley are Life-Boats only go about 20-25kts. These kind of pictures are from relative movement through the sea.

I've been on "pig" ships that go only 12kts that can get almost as much air....*smile* Depends on the weather.

That reminds me. " The Perfect Storm " is comming out in the local theaters. It's a great book...I hope the movie is as good.

I had to go out and look for the Andria Doria after it was reported missing. I had no idea we'd be making history at the time. That was my first "real" storm out of boot camp.

Lionpride, I figured you for someone mid 20's...until I read that you were looking for the Andrea Doria, which went down in 1956... Just out of curiosity, what rank are you?
