You are 100% correct. Usually the smaller ships will wait for the storm to pass or try to go around it.

It all depends on how many aircraft are on board and how much fuel they are carrying. With a full air wing your looking at anywhere from 60 to 80 aircraft. The ship holds close to 2 million gallons of jet fuel. That fuel is also used for running the emergency diesel generators that we have for back up power. So to answer your question, I'd say 40 feet is a pretty reasonable guess.
