Wow, that is just unbelievable. I wouldn't want to be one of the crew.  Thanks for posting journeys.

I lost count of the number of times I thought they'd gone under.

Nah!  Keep the doors closed and the engine running. You'll be alright if there's enough water under the keel.

Reminds me slightly of the return trip from France when I was younger. We'd had a bit to drink and a nice meal before boarding. The channel was a bit rough - lumpy was mentioned by one of the crew.
I was wearing a green shirt and by the time we reached Dover (or maybe Folkstone) my friend said he couldn't see where the shirt ended and my face began  Cheesy
