No, but it was on the Westcountry news this am. The biggest worry is stuff moving around on the car deck when it's that bad. When a 40ft artic with a fridge full of fish breaks lose it does a bit if damage.

I think one of my work friends was on that boat. Guess I won't find out till he finishes his holiday. LOL.

This is the 2nd time this sort of thing has happened now in a month or so - see this BBC link....

Surely they must have known it was going to be rough

There was a prog on Ch5 on the Irish Ferries ship the Ulysees, and they showed the wind speed as something like 70knots at the time of filming, and the ship was quite happily trundling through the swell - superb stuff.

I wish - every time I have been across Biscay it has been like a mill pond - I love being on ships that size in rough weather - 40,000 tons makes you feel quite safe!!!

Trying not to spill your pint whils't in the aft bar. A half-cut mate,once lost balance in the gents mid-pee. He did a little dance to one side and pee'd along the backs of the legs of the other guys that were lined up at the trough.
