Applicability of extreme-value theory in predicting the maximum crest amplitude in runs of ocean waves is demonstrated using data from extensive computer simulations of random linear waves. Extension of the theory to include wave crests in heavy seas is also made within the context of Stokes nonlinearities. Results are confirmed with scaled laboratory measurements.
