In late October 1998 a laden, post-Panamax, C11 class containership, eastbound from Kaohsiung to Seattle, was overtaken by a violent storm in the North Pacific Ocean. The encounter with the storm continued for some 12 hours, mostly at night, during which the master reduced speed and attempted to steer into increasingly higher seas off the vessel's starboard bow.
