Helluva shot

Yes Chris, a cracking photo indeed.
As REG says though...must be a rollercoaster of a ride up there.....and a long way from the lifeboat, should it ever be needed! (Hopefully never of course.)

Thanks Clyde

Actually got it all wrong, we should have been much further ahead and closer to the ship, not standing off like this.

Chris, when I see shots like this I always think of you propping yourself against something and/or holding the camera in one hand. Marvelous to see such results. Thank you.

I sailed on several ships with the deckhouse all the way up at the bow, similar to the configuration shown here. It isn't pleasant, like living on a roller-coaster. On the bridge We had a railing built around the position where the helmsman stood at the wheel to prevent him from being flung away from his post. In addition, all the windows facing forward in the deckhouse had to be plated over to prevent their being knocked out by heavy seas. The only exception was the windows facing forward on the bridge which, naturally, could not be plated over. However, those bridge windows were occasionally knocked out during severe weather, causing damage to electronic equipment on the bridge. As a result, we used to carry a pre-cut wooden blank on the bridge ready to put place just in case one of the windows got knocked out.

Well photographed Chris. You certainly can get some chunky seas in the deep South.

Nice to see this proud piece of Dutch hardware (admittedly with a Polish hull) doing what she does best.

Thanks Paul

A huge swell with some around 5 metres
