Entering the exhibition one truly feels as though they are in a storm with the bow of the boat coming through the sea. What a spectacular entrance to a fabulous exhibit.

I have been in 40 ' seas on the Coast Guard Cutter "Tamaroa" in 1978. We were off Cape Hatteras, N.C. in February. We lost a lifeboat, all our deck lines and radio antennas. It was exciting but scary. I was seasick for the first time. My hero at sea is anyone who can survive to tell the tales of their experience. Disasters are real, personal and never forgotten. Your experience will always be there to tell others. Homer's paintings depict the action, wind, spray and fear of battling the rages of the sea.

It was really cool. The fact that it was done in oil on a canvas is amazing!

I liked the Life Line and seeing how Homer changed it to make it more dramatic

Always wonderful to see more of Homer's works. We are currently living in Gloucester and enjoy seeing it from his eyes.

I mostly enjoyed the paintings of the most unlucky sailors when they climbed out of the sea onto the rocks to their salvation.

I enjoyed seeing how he changed the rescue picture... changing the rope to show it was load bearing, etc... very clever..

We saw the breeches buoy/Lyle Cannon demonstrated at Coast Guard Beach in Cape Cod Massachusetts in the 1980's. Our son Ian was the demonstration rescuee!

I LIKE THAT A LOT OF THE PAINTINGS HAVE A LOT OF DETAIL. THE SHIPS THAT ARE DESTROYED HAVE AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF DETAILS. I LIKED THIS EXHIBIT A LOT BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE WONDERFUL PAINTINGS THAT IT HAS.

I liked the boats that were ripped up and fell down. I liked the sharks in the sea that were diving around the boats and I don't know what they ate.

I like the sharks that were right by the boat. I like the people who were trying to save themselves. I don't know what I like too. I want this.
