If you follow the coast guard on facebook, they post pics of her underway from time to time. Couldn’t find it, but they had a shot from her foretop one time.
Top 1000 Boat Pictures
Just for a frame of reference this thing is 85 feet longer than a flight 1 or 2 DDG-51 and 81 feet longer than a flight 2A.
Probably. Many [smaller boats have towers](http://www.saltwatersportsman.com/files/imagecache/enlarged_image/_images/201306/tower-01.jpg) too. The fish boats like this Hatteras are after are tuna/marlin which are many miles offshore (in NE USA at least), so they’re larger bodies and more spread out. Also they’re [Pelagic](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelagic_zone) so when they feed it’s near
Lakers rarely use tugs. This ship, along with several others, is designed for this river. They are some of the most maneuverable boats in the world and they carry cargo from the full size lakers up the river to the steel mills. Every operating
Thank god i’m not operating this. I would drop like 20 oil rigs before getting annoyed and leave. Stupid Claw cranes.
I did some looking up on her. Apparently she is not economical to operate and lacks self-unloading capability but might be put back into service if the economy picks up. Let’s hope she gets another chance to work the lakes.
It has a topside flight deck for launching and retrieving UAVs and a rear ramp that can launch and recover an 11-meter rigid-hull inflatable boat (RIB) or Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). It weighs 45 tons unloaded, light enough that it can be hoisted onto
I think it’s awesome in that no matter how bad weather you have outside you can still enjoy the scenery. For example if you go to Antarctica you can enjoy all the icy beauty in full view. My only worry is how durable the
Looks like discovery channel will do a 6 part series on the construction of these vessels!

I think necessary is stretching it. Ship breaking is indeed a necessary thing. The SE Asia method of running them aground and dismantling them with torches and hammers like carrion birds is not. Not only is it extremely dangerous, it’s also extraordinarily damaging to
Not drug enforcement (although they will do sweeps for illegal materials, it’s not their primary focus). They’re CBP Marine Interdiction Agents. They have these and SAFE boats in their fleet.
No! Its just one large ship to my knowledge. It does seismic mapping of the ocean so the stern is as wide as possible to spread out the sensors more without a beam. Or at least that is my understanding of it. It also
5% is a lot. Hell, current advances in aircraft tech (mainly winglets) are for 1 or 2%. Let’s say the ship uses 1000 tons of fuel for a journey. It’s about $200 per ton for bunker fuel, so that works out to about a
[This is why it’s being scrapped, just enough major damage, cosmetic and structural.](http://i.imgur.com/EYivN1T.jpg) Probably also because of the death count associated with it, but that would have been solved with a quiet rebranding.
[this](http://cdn2.hauteliving.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/QUATTROELLE-%C2%A9Klaus-Jordan130514-15721-790×1024.jpg) picture seems to show a more rounded bow than I’m used to seeing on private boats, but I’m far from being an expert.
Nope, [not grounded](http://marinetraffic.com/ais/default.aspx?mmsi=341244000¢erx=12.65036¢ery=55.75242&zoom=10&type_color=7). Maybe they fill the ballast tanks outside the baltic, because then they can’t get in trouble with the [special status](http://www.helcom.fi/stc/files/shipping/BWM.2_Circ.14_BWE-OSPARandHELCOM.pdf) baltic area?
[Boatnerd](http://www.boatnerd.com/pictures/fleet/cort.htm) has [an amazing photo](http://www.boatnerd.com/pictures/images/Stubby-rl.jpg) of her initial, temporary configuration without the cargo area. >The unusual-looking vessel was known as “Hull 1173” but acquired the nickname “Stubby” due to its appearance. Hull 1173 consisted of the Cort’s bow and stern sections, 182 feet long
According to Wikipedia: > Together with her sister ships, MOL Comfort was the first container ship classified by Nippon Kaiji Kyokai to utilize ultra high-strength steel with an yield strength of 470 MPa in her hull structure Hmmmm……
Lieutenant Steve Chesser was responsible for setting up the tours on the Iowa Class ships when they visited Australia in the mid to late 80s. Captain Thigpen got me abourd the nuclear sub when it ws moored in San Diego. Each member of my
[Article](http://www.ship-technology.com/projects/ms-norilskiy/) with lots of info on this vessel * length: 170m * dwt: 14,500t * 3x 6000kW engines * single 13MW, 5.6m diam. azipod * for transport of metals from the Dudinka mine * double-acting hull (stern first through up to 1.5m level ice)
The front windows also were a “weak” point; heavy seas caused lots of flex and often that’s where leaks would develop; where the flybridge is mounted to the salon deckhouse. Many an old Jersey built boat has water leaks in the windshield (not just
Modern lifeboats are essentially just small, fully-functional watercraft. They would serve to protect a crew from drowning, and would likely extend survival even in such a cold environment as they are sealed and not just open-air.

a tub is often a fiberglass shell used to hold water in, a boat is often a fiberglass shell used to keep water out, this is a fiberglass shell used to keep water both in and out.
