"How do men act on a sinking ship? Do they hold each other? Do they pass around the whisky? Do they cry?"

In an effort to answer this question, author Sebastian Junger investigated the disappearance of Capt. Billy Tyne and his crew of fisherman aboard the Andrea Gail. When talking to other mariners who survived that infamous storm off the coast of Massachusetts in 1991, Junger realized the true horrors of the ocean.

"A 70 foot wave has an angled face of well over 100 feet. The sea-state had reached levels that no one on the boat, and few people one earth, have ever seen," Junger's wrote in The Perfect Storm. When one storm-battered ship "finally limped into port several days later, one of the officers stepped off and swore he would never set foot on another ship again."

While you may never set sail on the seven seas, why not watch a terrifying, yet mesmerizing video of ships stuck in storms from the safety of your computer screen?
