Whos idea was it to put lightweight unsecured furniture on a hardwood floor on an ocean going vessel?

I'll take the case!

On a cruise we hit some storms that made a lot of people sick, but nothing like that. Not even close. I'd have been shitting bricks.

Ouch. Doesn't look like a pleasant voyage to me.

On the way back to Okinawa from Korea on the USS Frederick in '78. We were on the edge of a typhoon doing 40 degree rolls for three fucking days. Even the Squids were sick.

Been there done that on the USS Wabash in the Indian Ocean. We did one better on the fork lift though. Ours broke loose from the tie downs on the Helo Deck and went over the side. Fork lifts don't float

Who left the forklift unsecured?
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 6:48:46 AM EDT
Nope, a little rocking but nothing even close to that.

I cringed when I saw the forklift going ... !

shit... live leak, tag for a computer not at work.

Strap one hand to a bottle of rum, the other to the wheel. They call me Captain.

I could not believe how the people in the lounge would stand around, as if the ships rolling was going to stop.......the lady in the black suit looked like she kissed the column at full-speed.

Hard to believe that much gear went unsecured in the maintenance area. It looked like the wet-cell batteries on the forklift burst, and were sloshing acid all over the floor.

Link Posted: 9/7/2010 6:56:47 AM EDT
wow, guy in the machine area was very lucky to get out when he did

Did the Propane tank on it get punctured? It looked like it.

Seeing the forklift slide around scares the crap out of me.

That guy made the best decision of his life when he decided to go back the other way.

Just need to get your sealegs landlubbers.

Damn, that lady ate that pillar.

Wow

Surprised there were not any very serious injuries. Lots of potential for crushed bones and soft tissue. That forklift and lg cab. could easily have killed some people.

Secure for sea, shipmate.

I miss walking on walls

I like how the people make no effort to leave the large room (with numerous tables chairs and even a piano all moving about) and get to a smaller room.

Wow! Talk about a flatwater ship being being in a bad place at a bad time.

This one's not in the Navy's recruiting office:

Get into a passageway, don't stay in the mess hall with tons of tables sliding around
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 7:15:21 AM EDT
I'm glad nobody was killed. That forklift sure could have done that.

Besides that, just imagining myself on the boat I feel sea sick.

I know I'm glad they did it's more enjoyable to watch. It looks like a few figured out to anchor in, while others kept hoping the government would step in and help.

The fat guy sliding back and forth had me rolling.

Yup. Been there on an FFG on my way back to Japan. You can't sleep, eating consisted of sandwhiches. We did major damage to our windbreak doors and jbar davits ripped out. Everytime we smacked a wave the ship would come to a stop and water would completely cover the bridge. I'm lucky that I do not get sea sick.

Seas like that; yes. All that shit sliding back and forth fuck no.
Secure for sea fail.

all that shit should be bolted down, a ship is not an hotel, shit slides
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 7:35:15 AM EDT
That was from only 21' swells, I guess being bigger isn't always better, I've been in 25' swells on a 38' hatteras and it wasn't near as violent.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 7:38:25 AM EDT
That forklift was tossed around like a rag doll. That guy was lucky he got the fuck out of that area when he did.

Many of the cruise 'ships' are hardly more than glorified barges with a very shallow draft to enter shallow island harbors.

On St. Thomas (USVI) they can enter and dock.

When a real ocean going boat showed up they had to stay well out of the harbor and tender everyone in.

I think it's not bolted down, so they can use the room for more than just a dining room (eg, pack furniture away & make it a dance floor...

That said, if so, the furniture should be wherever 'away' is, before they took the ship into that WX.

Looks like a pretty normal day to me. We saw 50 foot seas above the arctic circle north of Norway one year, then I spent 30 days in the Bering Sea a year ago. Last summer we were 30 days in the Agulhas current, off the coast of South Africa. We’ll be in the North Atlantic this winter, for more fun.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 7:44:44 AM EDT

Nothing even remotely like the vid, but I had one day off the coast of Alaska that there were quite a few puddles of vomit scattered about the ship.

That was the day I learned I had better sea legs than I thought.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 7:47:27 AM EDT
lol, love the fat guy that just gave up on trying to get away.
