Video from the Wilfred Sykes on Lake Michigan -
 Capt. Eric Treece

Footage out on Lake Michigan during the storm over the weekend with wind gusts of 75mph and peak gusts of 108 mph. Video of Green Water crashing over deck, ice forming on deck, heavy seas, bow crashing into heavy seas. This looks like something you would normally see while out on the open ocean and not the Great Lakes.
