10 SHIPS in STORMY WEATHER

This just confirms.The power and danger of the seas isn't to be taken lightly. Glad my feet are on solid ground. 10:45 looks insane! It's just a quick couple of seconds but probably captures the ferocity of storms at sea better than most videos I've watched, and I've watched a lot. And it's not even of the bow/waves. I mean, that would be scary even if it was the 2nd or 3rd floor of a building. But in a boat? In the middle of the ocean? On average, one cargo ship -- bulk carrier, container ship, etc.  is lost every week. I'm surprised there's still that many in 2023. Went through the IO on the USS Peleiu - 5 and the coast of California in another LHA. Boy what a ride. Hats off to the sailors of the world. They are the rock stars of the sea! Somebody made a comment that started a whole new thing in my head. How did the vikings or the early explorers do it with at the time with much smaller wooden boats? After seeing the Gulf of Mexico clip (10:10 - ish) and the North Atlantic clip before that, what if there were actually so many more expeditions sent out, privately commissioned expeditions or even rogue ones (pirates), and the only ones that made it to our history books were the 5% or so that survived?
