    <continued from StockHouse Road Trip: El Salvador Shipwreck Part 1>I began heading up the line of the breakers looking for that hole, but the storm kept gaining in strength to the point where I had very little control of the boat. The storm seemed to worsen to the point where the lightning and thunder felt, looked, and sounded, like it was right on top of us.  While I never...
