VIDEO: Sea-sickening clip from Spirit of Tasmania in storm

THIS short video is makes you feel more than just a little green around the gills.

The clip captures the moment huge swells and powerful winds combine to create a harrowing journey aboard the Spirit of Tasmania on Tuesday night.

The buffeting of the ship by 100kmh winds was enough to toss around semi-trailers and cars during its journey from Melbourne to Devonport on Tasmania's north.

Businessman Terry Schutz said it was not until early Tuesday morning that the trip turned rough.

"The waves were smashing the ship and once or twice the vessel leaned heavily and everything flew off the tables in the rooms," he told Tasmania's Burnie Advocate.

"There would have been no one on that ship who was asleep after 5am."
