Agree, but you owe it to yourself to read or see the Penlee story.

The best version was on PBS years ago and I have not been able to find the original footage. I have the book and it describes the events accurratly.
There is another great read about a rescue boat leaving Chatham harbor to rescue a broken in half tanker offshore only to find that there are two broken tankers adrift in hurricane type conditions.

I think you're thinking of "Ten Hours Until Dawn" which is the story of the Pilot Boat "Can Do" and the 78' blizzard.

You could call it ‘tippy” but in reality it is stability. Boats that can roll can roll back. That’s a photo of a 270’ cutter. Very narrow beam. It will roll in a 6’ beam sea. It can also drift sideways in a hurricane. The weather in the photo was +50 mph wind and 20’ seas.

THTrs aren’t the only folks who have difficulty estimating wave height. If you want a different perspective, here’s a link to a video produced in the UK on wave heights reletive to sea kayakers.

Is uses Sea State as the gauge, so a sea state 4 is roughly te equivalent of sustained Beaufort force 4 winds. One of the cool things about a kayak is your body provides a gauge, so seated in a kayak, your head is roughly 3’ tall. 3’ waves are over your head.

I guess that means that in a small center console, 6’ waves should be head high.

Enjoy:

Sounds like a great read. The Chatham story was The Finest Hours.

It does kinda look ps but I believe you. It does look like the camera was held at water level giving a better feel for the wave hieght
