    Default So you want to be a sailor ???

    thanks for the vid link..brings back some memories.. I was in the USCG during the perfect storm and remember angry seas like that, sure makes you feel small even in a cutter..and I remember thinking to myself that we were the Coast Guard who was supposed to rescue us...lol
