Picture taken from U.S. Coast Guard helicopter – 17 Sep 2003. From a reader who has sailed on cruise ships in weather like this: There is a big slow push from the floor as the bow rise over a swell, then a slight weightless feeling as the bow drops over the edge, followed by a big shudder that rattles the entire ship as the bow smacks into the bottom of the trough (which seems to be the moment captured in the above picture – keep in mind that ship is 180 feet high above the water and 893 feet in length).
