We got hit with one after coming around the Horn back in 92 didn't really phase the Carrier much but our battle group got knocked around a bit.

Smaller ones can be just as bad on the beach. Just the other day after some large waves hit the beach one after the other it caused a unexpected rip current from all the water rushing back off the beach into the ocean that pulled two swimmers out to there deaths. Sad to hear but just lets you know that mother nature will do what she wants at any time..and there is nothing we can do to stop her..
