One comment on “The Perils of the Sea
  1. Well … 4 to 6 meter swell in a 47 meter vessel …
    I’m always amazed but what our cooks create with the little space they have and the rocking and rolling! And when we see something … then the course changes rapidly … we try to send a note to the kitchen … but I had some angry cooks in the past, yelling at me (to say the least) … ehm …
    Hope the guy makes it!
