Default Massive wave is southern hemisphere record

Massive wave is southern hemisphere record, scientists believe - BBC News

Scientists in New Zealand have documented what they believe is the largest wave ever recorded in the southern hemisphere.

The 23.8m (78ft) wave was measured by a buoy on New Zealand's Campbell Island in the Southern Ocean on Tuesday, the country's weather authority said.

It eclipses a 22.03m wave that was identified south of the Australian state of Tasmania in 2012.

Please. That THT 78 footer was no more than 64 feet. Such an exaggeration and don't give me that, "pictures make it look smaller" line.

When I was stationed in HI ( 1989 'ish ) I was working on I on a salvage ship in port with a dive team attached where I saw a female LT dive officer who is at the top of the most impressive examples of a female of our species that I have witnessed . Perfect picture of young health , beauty and confidence . 11 out of 10 . AMERICAN MADE , Nothing else comes Close
