For all you armchair sailors...

A typical day at sea in a mild storm. You might see why the Navies and Coastguards of the world require decent seakeeping ships. Particularly to conduct SAR missions, for this weather is typical, if not worse in those scenarios.

And for those of you, landlubbers now, who have regularly experienced the thrill of such a blue-water storm, this video will bring memories flooding back. Solid green water on the bridge windows is common in stronger weather.
