Default 100' Waves

Check out this article. I thought going out in 10-12' waves in a 16' Larson Senza was crazy.

I cant even imagine going through those kind of waves!!! When he talks about the props hitting the foam at the top of the wave the first thing that came to my mind was at the ending of the movie "The perfect storm" where he guns the throttles of the boat to try and make it up the wave and the boat slide backwards down the face of the wave!
Worst ive ever got caught is was probably 10-12's as well.....problem was they were so close that the 30' boat i was in was nose diving into the face of the next wave each time i went over one! It was a slow and long ride to get back home......and i was only going no more then about 3miles to get to the launch ramp from where we were

Great documentary, there waves at that place are unreal. Even the jet skis are subject to dangers.

My choice would be the USS Enterprise. I saw green water over the bow in the North Pacific near Adak... the flight deck is about 60 feet above the water surface.
