For all our members who yearned for a life on the ocean waves but never did quite make it, and those who wished they had never left it, may I recommend some good viewing of life on the ocean wave in the two movies on www.cargoshipphotos.com/images/andrej/

Glad I was seeing these videos on a pc screen and not on ship, the damage was incredible, no wonder they were wearing life jackets.

good bit of filming, almost a rough sea, like a walk in the park (Night)

Good footage though! (Thumb)

I thought he might have meant a hurricane, too. But then I remembered I was reading an article regarding the Beaufort Wind scale and it said, "If Admiral Beaufort was publishing his scale today, he would have different names for different wind-strength hurricanes." So I thought our American Brothers had dreamed up a new catagory? Vix (K)

For once we "foreigners" has some advantage from knowing other languages than english. In the scaninavian languages a hurricane is called an orkan, and by the way it's supposed to be written that way in german as well.

Ralf,
Good of you to clear that up for us - kiitos! (Applause)

I've almost exhaused my total Finnish vocabulary now - as a teenager the only other phrase I learned at a mixed Scout Jamboree was "minš rakastan sinua" - I'm not directing that comment at you bye the way! Ah ...... she was beautiful! (Jester)

Still know all the numbers Ray from my days working out of Kotka or Kiwi of the North as it was fondly known. Numbers were for booze trade (Thumb)

Numbers were for booze trade (Thumb)which reminds me of the Rochester-Kotka-Rochester run I did as Mate on the 'Sigrid Wehr' yonks ago. Peddling vodka to the natives to double our wages and to have a bit of spending money for the casino in town.
