“Four days in hell…”

When storms are bad enough, life gets miserable both on deck and below decks. On deck, sailors have to work much harder to handle sails and rudder, and everything is riskier. They will end up getting wet despite any waterproof gear that they might be wearing.

Below decks, it is too rough for a fire, so it is impossible to warm up, dry off, or have a hot meal. Add seasickness into the mix, since even seasoned sailors get seasick when things are rough enough, and things go from bad to worse.
