Some great pictures of big waves

All this talk about flooding boat etc. I thought we could use some light entainment and a few pictures showing how much fun it can be on the ocean!

Serious waves

If these pictures are of the weather described on the other thread, I can understand the flooding method, having seen the pictures of the yacht hulls after the '76 (?) fastnet and being out on curise liner a few hours ahead of it. That race showed the truth in staying with boat..
