A rattling yarn. I have a few little ditties. Just how long or short do the rales have to be?

Similar story as the OP. On the tug INVERNESS while running home light to Sitka AK, from a tow job, the wind blew up from nothing to a steady 70 plus knots with gust nearing 100.  The wind created such a strong vacuum effect that it blew the hooked doors off of the forward scuttle hatch and sent one flying over the side, we saved one. My brother was holding a hand held anemometer into the wind and the little balls got stuck to the top!  We were inside so there was no sea to speak of but man did it blow!
