Video of the Charles Wilson flexing in a gale.
I’ve always thought it would be cool to take a trip on one of the big ore carriers but I’ll pass on doing it in a storm.

(REMEMBER THE RIVER RAISIN!)
Wife and I took a trip as guests on an Interlake steamer some years back. The voyage was from Two Harbors to Ford Motor at the Rouge River, north of Detroit.
These big boats flex just going down the lake.
That vid was amazing. The soundtrack caught my ear, so I noted some of the lyrics and looked up the song.
that was amazing - thanks for posting
These are not lakes, they are inland seas. :’) And freshwater has a shorter wavelength, so in otherwise identical storms, a boat will be broken faster.
