I'm another big fan of that porch. On a different day that looks like a heck of a place to drink beer.

Note especially the NOAA graphic, showing the wave heights east of the buoy measuring 23' are even greater.

Sorry my movie didn't adequately capture the true height, as there are no reference points.

The deck I'm on is 60' above the water level.

I've raced in true 5-6 footers in Lake Michingan, Coco Beach and Key West, and I'm positive that what I filmed was MUCH larger. There's no way in hell I would have attempted boating that day . . . in any size boat.
In Malta last year P1 raced on Saturday in 15-20s. They cancelled the Sunday race after forecasts predicted 25s. Lot of broken boats and people that day.
