I was onboard when this was taken, and yes I did feel a little green at times!! Its a 150m pipeline survey and trenching vessel. Gets interesting at about 00:35

I'm guessing the swell is about 10-12m ish........

Ouch. We sometimes get the aftermath of rough weather on the cargo that is imported from the UK - over the years there have been a few things wrecked, and if you think that forklift was scary think of one that weighs about 20 tons sliding from side to side right across an open hold. Fortunately there was a Land Rover in the way otherwise the forks would almost certainly have gone out through the side of the boat but the casualty vehicle was - literally - about four feet shorter that it should have been by the time it arrived and the engine and gearbox of the fork lift was lying on the deck underneath it!

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
