Rough Seas Beware

CGC SHERMAN has been hit by some VERY rough seas as of late! Multiple low pressure systems have passed through the Bering and unfortunately we have been right in the thick of things every time. Up to 30ft seas and 40 knot winds were measured by quartermaster of the watch during the worst of it! Unluckily, we felt the blunt of it as the seas were coming off our beam (hitting us directly from the side of the ship), causing major rolls up to 25 degrees during the night. Needless to say, we were very happy to have a port call this past weekend to get some much needed rest and good nights sleep. Hopefully we can run and hide when the next predicted storm hits!

  1. Holy Cow! Im glad that you all got a break and some rest. Hopefully you can stay clear of any storms for the remainder of your patrol. Hang in there and stay safe. Thank you so much for the update. Also how did your crew celebrate Halloween ? Would love to hear your stories. ~ Cottons Ohana (safe n sound on the beach in Hawaii )
