Large storm swells reached
Morro Bay California on December 4, 2007, bringing 15-20
foot swells with some plus sets.? A U.S. Coast Guard
47-foot Motor Life Boat was out for practice maneuvers
in the large surf, which is not unusual.?
However, a large wave hit that was probably more than
they bargained for...at least it's the hardest I've ever
seen them get hit.? The air was filled with mist, and
they were quite distant, so at times were just a shadow
in the mist. I've adjusted them for better visibility,
however the quality of the photos is not the greatest
due to the above conditions, and futile attempts to keep
the lens dry.
