All,
On Heavy Weather.
On another site I recently visited there is a picture of the Queen Victoria at speed in what appears to be a low sea state dipping and taking water forward, the term is I think called "plunging".
Can anyone confirm or allay my fears?
Yours aye,

Try searching youtube I think I saw the video there, taken from QE2 no less.
"plunging" isn't the word for it...
Here is the link (or one of them anyways) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAR8i2eSHiE

She actually looks as if she's going to nose-dive at any time. She doesn't instill any confidence in me especially that the sea was not particularly rough.

I'm sorry, but she looks like a piece of lego bobbing along the briny sea !

There are also some shots on the web of QE2 on the same crossing. She was bucking like a bronco, which is confirmed by the fact that QV is often out of the screen in the shots given above.
There is no problem with the sea keeping of either ship, but I would rather be on the new QV than the tired 40 year old QE2

Looking at the clips posted it is what we used to call " shipping a green sea " where solid water is dumped on the deck and you get shuddering as the ship raises on the next wave and the scuppers are trying to clear the water over the side. Dont think much of Queen Victorias efforts at handling the Nth Atlantic.

I think the word you are looking for is pitching

Well done Tell - pitching it is and ' taking them green ' regarding the waves.
