Submarining till it hits the bridge.....

It ain't "Heavy Weather" until the Waves break on the Bridge Windows, Try riding out a Typhoon. What a bunch of wusses, calling that "Heavy Weather"! USN Retired ('64-'86).

...or the monsoons in the Indian Ocean...

This brings back some memories. I watched shipmates go through both stages of seasickness...stage 1 you're afraid you're gonna die. Stage 2 you're afraid you're not...

Tom...You got that right! Green over is great!

Hey Gunfighter1b...when were you on Dahlgren? I was on when she was DLG 12 in 1969...Persian Gulf

Author Gunfighter1b ( ago)
That's not heavy weather, we caught the tail of a hurricane in the windward passage on the USS Dahlgren, came into Gitmo with a lot of lifelines gone, leaking doors and most of the paint blasted off the hull.

Lol, this is not heavy seas. Not a single one of those waves nailed the pilothouse dead on, and not once did the bow dip under the waves in a trough.

LOL agreed, went through a typhoon 5 years back, now that was rough weather lmfao. Rough enough to send waves overtheflight deck of a Nimitz class CVN. Glad we wernt on a small boy at the time haha. Thats hardl a gale. Been in worse on 34' Patrol boats

I don't share your need to use scatological references. If your passion for a man to snuggle up with is so great you should search elsewhere. "Seek and Ye shall find."

You made that point already! 500.000 so were 496,000 away from zero coffins after 7-years of war. I estimate at this present pace we have 124-years left with the supply we have!

Where did you get the 500,000 children killed....Al-Jazeera? Americans support/fund your island with tourism you ungrateful shit! Tell that shit to everybody that visits Aruba....make banners....make LOUD public speeches near the cruise ships and the airport and see how long Aruba survives economically!

F.E.M.A. has 500,000 coffins made in American, stored in America, awaiting Americans. U.S./U.N. forces have killed 500,000 Iraqi children since 1991.

You Dutch are killed a schoolgirl and you talk shit! I hope Venezuela invades your shit island!

500,000 plastic, stackable coffins, each capable of holding 3 cadavers, each designed for the crematory ovens sit awaiting their grisly disposition off Lions Club Road in Madison, Georgia {Greater Atlanta} on land leased to F.E.M.A.
Shut up and be patriotic!

wow, that reminds me so much of the days I was in the Navy onboard DDG 52.

Author Preston Welsh ( ago)
Doesn't look to bad. I remember some 40'+ off cape Hatteras during a hurricane a few years back on DDG-80

The Might Warship 'CHON?? The INCH---ON? My first ship ('85-'86)

Author buddy ( ago)
The worst I experience on USS Rentz was the north pacific our my way to Portland. The waves where at least 40 to 50'.

Author type42sheff ( ago)
been in force 12 in north atlantic on british type 42 destroyer in 70-s. first time experience weightlessness...........great fun.

I took my BUDS Test in Beirut, I wasn't afraid of ANYTHING, except when we were in that Storm, I went out on the Bridge and the Helo Carrier USS Inchon was at a 45 degree angle off of our Port Bow, and we were Pitching at the time and I looked over and saw the ENTIRE ass end and Screw of the Inchon Come out of the Water like a Toy Boat, THEN I was afraid, it put into Perspective just how MIGHTY the Sea is

I was on the Shreveport LPD-12 and when we were Steaming to Beirut in 82-83 we were taking 43 degree Rolls, the "Old Man" was worried about losing our Guns over the side, that was 2 days and I have NEVER been so sick in ALL my Life, hell the Commodore was Puking also, it WAS bad, but I never got sea sick again after that, of course the Worse we had after that was 25-30 degree rolls
Did they ever bring the Rank of Commodore back?

Author Adam Allegro ( ago)

Author Adam Allegro ( ago)
