Umm, just quietly, in a following sea waves at the stern quarter will broach you. Especially for a rear wheel paddle steamer. Not something that Ivan would know, but definitely something anyone who had used paddle boats or vessels larger than trailer boats would be aware of. As a commercial Coxwain, all skippers I knew always said that you want the waves to be right on the stern to avoid that, on on the nose, but the nose is not so picky. But never, never anywhere near the beam. As far from there as possible. On the stern quarter has rolled a lot of boats...

Re: OOC thread
OK, I'm going from stuff I read on steam ships years ago that seemed to want the waves off of dead astern ... but I damn sure am not an authority ... we'll bring her around some to stay afloat.

Ideally you want to head into the seas, but if you have to go the other way, you want to be pretty close to dead away and try to stay on the back of the waves.

Re: OOC thread
That would seem to be our only choice right now, besides running aground ...

Re: OOC thread
I do not believe this vessel is cleared to conduct barrel rolls.

Are you going to try and find out. You could make a few rolls :)

Just to clarify maritime terminology, 'rolling' from front to back is called pitching, whilst the term rolling is generally reserved for side to side motion. In case it matters, the vessel rotating about the vertical access, which is like steering left to right and back is called yawing.

Re: OOC thread
Yes, and if you roll enough you go inverted... the trick then is to keep rolling so you come up on the other side. That is called a barrel roll.

No, the trick is to keep the rolling at a minimum so you do not get wet.

Ships do not barrel roll unless specifically designed, at great expense, to do so.

I have heard of self righting life boats, but never a self righting ship...

Not common, for sure. Not sure if one existed, but it has been the topic of some discussion. But this is a paddle boat...

Re: OOC thread
And considering no one is strapped in, Rolling could be hazardous. How well do you all bounce?
