    You guys are all missing the point. of the picture... these HUGE ships don't normally do this sort of thing, it's fantastic. I spent some time on a carrier too. One evening the "Man overboard" alarm sounded and everyone was to report to their duty station. The ship was doing a U -Turn going back after, what they thought at the time, was someone who had accidentally driven off the top off the flight deck in a "Mule". It was a false alarm but I'll tell you, when we did the U Turn we were listing some 10 - 15 degrees and everything that wasn't tied down was sliding... It was a sacry feeling ! But, an exciting and meaningful experience...
