wave maker of the season. I distinctly recall looking at the wave
forecast on the FNMOC site and marveling at the intensity the storm
achieved on the eastern side of the Atlantic.
Having grown up with the blue corduroy of the pacific, one of the
most amazing aspects of the Atlantic off Ireland is how short the
period can be on mountainous seas. I've seen 15 meter seas with 8-9
second period. Check out "Ryan's Daughter" for big nasty grey lumps
pounding on the shore of the Irish coast.
Hopefully this guy's EPIRB got triggered by some freak wave and he's
just dazed, grateful and rowing Eastward.
