Shh...she thinks I waxed it Saturday.

So I have a response being that the beak does the magic on the head on/on coming seas.

Seems to me Cape Coral isn't on an ocean. Regardless, your post makes you sound like a pompass azzhole who has never boated on any "great lake". NK

Or, since I'm being kind, are you merely indulging in hyperbole for the sake of magnifying your self-perception?

Not that there's anything wrong with your lust for hyperbole, since you apparently live in the grimmest place most of us can imagine: the dull, boring Midwest
I have boated on the ocean off of Miami. I have also done the gulf side (Cape Coral & Fort Myers area) which is about as flat of water I have ever been in. No doubt the ocean in really high winds will sink ships it gets so bad, but so will the dull boring Great Lakes. Read the posts and you will discover our lakes can be brutal.

I guess no one watches the discovery channel.

The great lakes have some of the meanest waters around (when it's windy). This is due to the amplitude and frequency of the waves. They get some stiff north and northwesterly winds in the fall and winter from the clippers and low pressures!

In one discovery show there was a tanker that was in some very rough seas and two waves under the boat, bow and stern. This caused the ship to break in half and sink to the bottom.

Other places like Lake George and Lake Champlain, the wind funnels down the mountains and it gets really bad! When I was young my family had to spend a couple extra nights because it was too rough to go home on Champlain.
