At least they got enclosed bridges now.....

Real-life dialogue between a Navy doctor and me, 1983:

Doctor: "Your middle ear infecftion in childhood has left you with insufficient balance sensitivity. I'm afraid that rules you out of the Navy."
Me: "But that means I practically can't get seasick even if I wanted to..."
Doctor: "Doesn't do you any good if you misjudge your step in the swell and fall overboard. By the way, don't even think of trying the Air Force!"
Well, the Military Police didn't mind...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I remember seeing photos of the old HMAS Melbourne (our last aircraft carrier) in the Bass Straight. It's bow and for'd section of the flight deck were under and all four screws were out of the water at the other end. Apparently quite a few Stokers went AWOL in Hobart after that, stating that nobody should have to go through what they did in the engine and boiler rooms.
I'll see if I can find the pics<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Interesting comment from the press:

" Why can I hurl the Extra300S around the FSX sky and ride rolling Atlantic swells in SH3 without ever feeling the need to launch my lunch? The lack of real movement? Yes that must be it. Because most of our gaming chairs aren't lashed to ??30,000 6DOF motion platforms (www.inmotionsimulation.com), sims don't make us half as nauseous as they rightly sshould."

I have this from wikipedia


<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Human beings instinctively seek to remain upright by keeping their centre of gravity over their feet. The most important way this is achieved is by visual reference to surrounding objects, such as the horizon. Seasickness often results from the visual confusion on a moving craft, when nearby objects move with the motion of the craft. Because the lines of the masts, windows, and furniture on a ship are constantly shifting with respect to fixed references, humans can suffer a number of afflictions, especially those unaccustomed to being at sea.

Sea-sickness has such a remarkable effect because both the sense of sight and touch are disturbed by the motion of a craft on water. The severity of seasickness is also influenced by the irregular pressure of the bowels against the diaphragm as they shift with the rising and falling of the ship.

Nice videos. Ahh, memories. I've seen it like that before. Force 5 gale off Hatteras, in a champaign cork called LST 1181, USS Sumter. Like riding a dangerous roller coaster (per Celeon's video of Davy Jones), that rolls more than it pitches. We took green water over the bow, and were flooding pretty badly through the tank deck. I did fine until I skipped lunch, then got queasy, retired below, and started calling various automobile names below, in the head.....Buuuuick. Not pretty. We were taking 45 degree rolls, and I couldn't have cared less. I found out later the ship wouldn't recover past 50 degree rolls, because of the rounded bottom. Took two days to recover, but dry crackers helped enormously. Fond(?) memories.

It is amazing how those steel ships bend. The sea is so powerful. We need to be reminded of that, from time to time. For now, I'll just hunker down behind the spray deflector on my VIIB. "Thompsen, there, it's Thompsen!!!!!"

Thats weird , that hallway shot , seeing the thing bend like that , of course if they didnt build them with stress points like that they would snap . still after seeing that , i would have rode that storm out in one of the lifeboats still attached to the side of the ship. Thats why i like working on tow boats , right here in the river ,sometimes the sounds , and we dont get hit with stuff like that , and our boats dont bend.
