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)

Vix,

Only guessing but he perhaps meant hurricane strength.

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 "minä rakastan sinua" - I'm not directing that comment at you bye the way! Ah ...... she was beautiful! (Jester)

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.
