Even though we know it's supposed to flex like that, it looks pretty unnerving.

I had heard that they designed vessels to be flexible, so that they would bend, rather than break, but this is the first time to see it in action. So freaking weird.

Might be normal flexing but I’d be waiting in the lifeboat till the storm passed.

while the interior shots looks scary you have to remember how long those vessels are. Sky scrapers flex in the wind in a similar manner.

had no idea their was that much flex, wow

That interior shot was scary to say the least.

I know it is doing exactly what it is supposed to do, but it does not make it any less unnerving!

As an naval architect, you are pleased that such a phenomenon receives so much attention :)

And that’s why planes have curtains and short cabins

So Senator Collins why did the front fall off?

Well a wave hit it.

 I joined the first big ship I was on, the Exxon North Slope in LA in Feb 1986. When I got up the next day after we were underway I looked out the port hole from my room which faced forward. The weather wasn't even bad just a blustery day really the deck was flexing sort of in waves.I remember thinking "I hope they know what they're doing".
  Later when we were loading in Valdez, AK I was on watch out on deck. We had radios to communicate with the mate in the cargo control room . I was walking around the deck singing the one verse from SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW that I knew. As I walked aft in front of the control room the mate was pounding on the porthole . My radio was stuck in the transmit mode and they had been listening to me sing for about 10-15 min.I was mortified.Good days.Thanks for the video.

I know any large thing(sky-scraper, ship, airplane, bridge, etc.)flexes. Seeing it is cool. Thanx.

I don't know why but I love the videos of ships in the middle of rough sea. Also the videos of lighthouses with huge waves hitting them.

My truck trailer flexes like that to, the containers probably help with the rigidity and support.

Thanks YouTube for putting this BACK in my watch list after 3



Been there and served on these ships they move all right 🇬🇧👍🏻🍺🙏👍🏻
