When not in operational use as a humanitarian assistance vessel, this beauty is docked at Woolloomooloo Naval Base (possibly the most Australian place name ever) in Sydney. I drive past it everyday on my commute. If it could go ahead and hurry up finding

Finally got there today and she’s the [Kaskelot](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaskelot_\(tall_ship\)). I can’t work out why she was apparently renovated last year and painted black as on the Wikipedia page, but she’s now grey undercoat again. Plenty more information and pictures a google search away with the
Can get a slightly used one for $31M USD here: http://www.edmiston.com/luxury-yachts-for-sale/db9-52m-1175/ Needless to say it’s not so much the purchase cost. It’s the upkeep and crew that are the big costs…it says it has room for 11 crew or you can [charter it](http://www.yachtcharterfleet.com/luxury-charter-yacht-24370/db9.htm) for
H1s. H2s and H3s are tonka truck toys with normal suburban suspension, terrible at everything, get like 12mpg. Pieces of shit.
I believe that is what you call a turtle. Usually these boats sail with only one hull in the water. The hull that was in the water hit a wave and the bow submerged and the momentum/wind pushed it over.
Saw it in Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands last summer. Saw the tower sticking up out of the fog in the morning and thought it was the nautilus itself. Quite the talk of the town when I got into port. When we
While the tugs do a lot, the ship still has tunnel thrusters fore and aft to help with the finer movements. Tugs also cost a fuckload, so the less the company has to employ them the better. The size of these newer ships (Maersk,
One propellor is significantly more efficient than two. The Steve Irwin(and a lot of medium-size ships) has two engines driving a single reduction/transmission gear. This lets them run on two for speed, or one for fuel efficiency or to do maintenance. Also note that
Haha I hear ya. I take my pictures at Centennial Park in Fort Monroe in Hampton. It’s more or less the perfect place to take pictures of ships as they come and go. You can see them as soon as they cross the CBBT
I thought the same thing about cruising (at least the rushed/scheduled part) before I went on one… it’s not really the case – there’s lots to do, but if you don’t want to do it, you don’t have to. At the end of the
Otherwise you have to sand the whole hull before you start applying the filler. Yacht painting is already a very lengthy job, for the project I am currently working on it takes about 12 months to fair and paint the whole hull. Adding extra
Not really. It was a total project; I needed to redo everything (floor, stringer, fiberglass, interior, gauges, electrical system, engine, etc). You can land a really cool old boat for cheap, especially the 50s ones. I restored a 50s 16′ runabout before this one.
I have left reddit for [Voat](https://voat.co/) due to years of admin mismanagement and preferential treatment for certain subreddits and users holding certain political and ideological views. The situation has gotten especially worse since the appointment of Ellen Pao as CEO, culminating in the seemingly
It’s sort of both. Essex is shallow, so they launch at the very highest tide. The boat goes stern first off the slipway into the water, but the ways are designed to roll her over as she goes, so the vessel goes in well
Cheers. I misread the translation for promène, I saw a bit saying “often with the implication of showing off”. My French is lousy anyway.
I am absolutely fascinated and inspired by your recent pictures. I am unemployed at the moment with a university degree in Anthropology and have always been adsorbed by the sea. Sometimes when things are looking grey, and depression slowly crawls in, I find comfort
They aren’t water tight, but this isn’t shopped, you can find many similar pics online of sea trials of our large decks. Note the lack of A/C on the deck… they can’t fit all 60+ in the hangar, as you know!
Yeah, it is massive, and it is beautiful. Our junior deckhand was at the wheel for training on the 48 ft boat I work on while we passed it, and I joked with him saying he should tie up next to it…he didn’t do
“Four huge redundant container ships are being mothballed on Loch Striven, in the Firth of Clyde. The decline in world trade has caused the Danish shipping giant Maersk to put the ships into storage. Some local people have expressed dismay that they are spoiling
There are several ships in the Duluth/Superior harbors that you can get relatively close to: “Presque Isle” is here: http://goo.gl/maps/ADBsM The “American Century” is here: you can get a good look at her by walking out on the Interstate Bridge fishing pier: http://goo.gl/maps/ZTRQv The
Funny story about the Phoenix. The company operating it at the time was a shell corporation and South Africa had to foot the bill for re-floating here. In the meanwhile, she was towed and subsequently scuttled a few months later.

So when a huge ship like this is designed and built they incorporate specific points in the hull where the ship can rest on supports. This way when the ship is taken into a dry dock to be painted or repaired the workers know
