This is what 3000 tons of ship looks like in 40-foot seas. It looks cool, but it's a real drag to try to work, eat, and sleep in it for hours or even days straight. BTW, the round thing up front is a 10-foot tall gun sitting on a deck that's about 35-feet above the surface of the water. The bow/maindeck of the ship is one "story" below the gun and is completely obscured by this "bow crash."
