    I'm sure many of us are familiar with the 45 degree walk along the passageways and the stomach-churning lurch up forward when the deck drops away from us but on a big ship such as that it must be a novelty. I was lead to believe that at certain wind velocities the sea was pretty much blown flat and if true, then it would occur below 120 mph, I'd have thought.

    Then again, only three weeks ago I watched a Wafu puke in the Solent on a P2000 on a flat calm day. (A few dozen vodka and cokes the night before probably didn't help her, to be fair), so nothing surprises anymore :)
