Nice, ahh, I mean bad story there @Chrisnvegas . That's some serious weather to deal with on a craft like yours. Glad to hear you and your family made it back without being involved in a mishap/collision/or worse.

I don't call myself a sailor either, even though I spent 26+ years aboard US Navy warships (mostly cruisers and destroyers + ~7 aircraft carriers and a submarine here & there). Besides my regular sea rotations, I worked as a trainer for 12 years averaging 26-36 warships a year worldwide wherever the Navy wanted to send me to train & certify the crews. I "retired" ~16 years ago. I still go aboard US warships & submarines today albeit in a different capacity.

I have just a few sea stories myself but don't wanna litter up the thread too much.

While on a 900 foot OBO (oil, bulk, ore) ship, We hit a large wave doing a winter north atlantic crossing (some of the worst weather ever... ended up w a 47* roll. Luckily we were empty. Most ships don't come back from 47*... Cargo shifts and holds ship in that position or tips it over.

I was the navigator and set a course from Rotterdam south to Azores and across to Bermuda up to Norfolk... Longer than running straight across but safe... Spanish Captain (US company w foreign flag ship) said, No he wanted straight across. Took us two days longer going his way because of the weather...

Sea stories: My first permanent ship assignment after two years as a BM2 running boats at the world's busiest SAR station (Base Miami Beach) and then as a junior officer on Cutter Courageous saw some interesting conditions. Over in New Providence Channel in the Bahamas nice calm sunny day with five waterspouts from one shelf cloud. I have a great picture, but not on the computer and can't upload right now, of the Courageous slamming the bow into a big wave during a hurricane evasion. Water shooting up through the anchor hawse pipes and everything else over the bow.

Back then all sea stories between Coasties started with "Now this ain't no ****".

I saw the ocean once.

Shaggy, I know it isn't a Texas Star, but it'll hold me over until then.
I ran out of white paint.

My friend has a tackle shop and gun store.
The toilet paper hoarders basically sold him clean a couple weeks back.
So he said he decided to be closed for now since he doesn’t have what everybody was wanting anymore anyways.

If anyone wants or needs an /f12 sticker in black or white, I found a bunch while packing up for our move. Absolutely free!

Send a self addressed, stamped envelope to:

Tim Hunt
22641 Old Canal Rd.
Yorba Linda CA 92887

This is my business address, so keep it civil on the envelopes. I will be mailing them in the envelope you provide, so make sure you have enough postage on it.

WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

STILL PLENTY LEFT...

Yeah I wrote it on the back of the envelope. I usually put my stickers on my bumper. I'll figure out something to do with it.
