I spent some time on a DDG

back in the late 70s - we did a cruise in the atlantic. Lots of driving around, chasing subs, shooting missiles and guns. Ran into some rough weather a we headed to Halifax, and we would get green water over the bow, and it would sweep back well past the bridge- no place to safely get pics. You could actually feel the ship and bunk drop out from beneath you when in your rack, and we strapped in ( my stateroom was on the 01 level just aft of the bridge). Video like the above is cool, but you REALLY need to ride it to appreciate it.
