that one video with the navy ship in the surf!

Postby Vin Stefanelli » Thu Jan 24, 2013 3:00 am

who here remembers that you tube link here on K-forum where a ship's crew is running drills in mad insane huge surf swells Delibratly rolling something the size of a destroyer completely over?
i can't seem to find it, I saw it here like 4 years ago, and am getting no-where with the search function.

Maybe it was this battleship after it was torpedoed?

90 of the men died.

I've seen video of the Coast Guard deliberately rolling their self-righting ships in big surf off the NW coast. They are not the size of a destroyer. More tug boat size.

nah , none of theses are it,

what i thought i saw here on K-F was a boat bigger than a tug while maybe smaller than a destroyer

and it was rolled repeatedly in HUGE surf and motored away every time
