    Warships are great. Two of my nephews just got out of the Navy. However, God can trump anything man can make. A wave can destroy whole land masses.

    A friend of mine through his carrier in the UK's Royal Navy told me he saw a few ones himself in the ship he was.

    Hey that is mild compared to what those ships can take if the wave is too steep the ship will go trough it completely submerged. There is also nothing like having the deck drop faster than your body can, it can really beat the hell out of you.

    spent almost 14 years sea duty....the north atlantic is a bitch!! I was on the USS Wasp (LHD-1) We got hit with the worst waves imaginable...our anchors worked loose and knocked holes in our foc'sle...then we lost the starboard anchor when a huge freakin wave simply took it away...the wave went over our island!! It also knocked our number one elevator askew and was inoperative for the duration of our military exercise near Norway......When I was on the Coral Sea we got hit by a huge rogue wave that cracked our angled deck...we were going about 20 knots and the wave stopped us cold...crewmembers flew all over the place...we had flooding in the elevator bay!!!

    I did a few years in the Army also...when the ship lists over 30 degrees, it gets you thinking of your swimming skills....and that it wouldn't matter...LOL :)

    A friend of mine was in UK's Royal Navy and he told me more or less the same thing. The ship he was in had her prow damaged. He told me these waves were called "rogue waves"

    Rogue waves kick ass!! When a thousand foot, 80,000 ton naval vessel is stopped cold by a wave....that's power on impossible to fathom... :)

    I have been in a lot worse. 1978 crossing the North Atlantic in winter the Battle Cruiser I was in took 45 degree rolls for two days straight.

    The ship is Latouche-Tréville a French F70 type anti-submarine frigate of the French Marine Nationale.
