Incredible stuff that these hulking vessels can do...seems like they are some fragile piece of naval engineering but even the biggest of USN carriers can do 31-32kts and survive in the roughest of seas that any other vessel would be expected to deal with. Sometimes very unbelievable.

Standard trials procedure, but that's only about 25-30 degrees roll, all in a day's work for a destroyerman. I woulda slept right thru that one (unless I was napping on the Signal Bridge).
