Look at this pic from Hurricane Isabel...
It takes a weather eye. We know where it is and which way it's going already, from the reports. From the surroundings we can see that the ship is heading generally east to nor'east and the storm is heading generally west to nor'west. The clues are the light and shadows (showing the ship's general orientation) and the calm waters around the ship (showing that the storm is not approaching directly), and the condition of the skies to the right of the storm (showing that the storm is moving to the left of the point of observation).Originally posted by moonmist:
How do we know he isnt in front of it
From the looks of her, that ship is heavy with cargo. All a hurricane could do to a fully loaded ship of that size is wash the decks and slow her down a bit.And the big boat theory..........wouldnt have wanted to be the fool to test that!!!
