Goto http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/news/ for some good pics of ships in rough weather.
This is a very good site, and people are regularly posting pics to it.

Not 100% sure, but I think Sammo's pic is of a boat owned by Marlon Brando (if that's not it, there was a very similar pic of it.) Story was that they were leaving somewhere on the Central Calif Coast (Morro Bay?) and got hit by a rogue wave as they crossed the bar. There was some (pretty weak) reason for leaving at that time; they ended up returning for repairs.

The first photo is legit.

I have the rest of the sequence as it goes over the top of the wave on my work computer.

I'll post them tomorrow if I get chance.

I know it's been posted before but to see how well a big RIB copes look at this video

Sea doesn't look THAT rough - until you see the supply vessel pounding through the waves - the RIB just skims across them!!!

Well that took about a week to download on dialup - but very impressive! What sort of RIB is that? looks to be a very deep V hull compared to most?

Don't know what they are based on or if it's their own design. They are made in Finland and look very good boats.

Dialup??? My God you poor thing - how the hell do you cope??? Then again no rat race either!!!
