    ....but 29m waves! That's the biggest ever wave, recorded in the North Atlantic! Not that I didn't have any respect for the old girl before, but after watching these programs....even more now!

    Indeed so, nature can really put us in a position of feeling like an ant with a size 10 boot about to land down mid stride..

    Was on that Raging Planet series. A ship had gone out from the UK, to measure currents in the ocean I think it was, hit some really bad storms, when they came back.....they noticed that they've sailed through a 29m wave!
