I’m watching a documentary on the History channel about this right now. What a crowd of ‘conservationist’ idiots. Ran over a fishing boat near Guatemala, killing a fisherman, and after being cleared by the Guatemalan gov’t (dunno how) continued the race! They should have

He’s getting downvoted because he’s making a generalized statement about cruise ship design based on one ship, as if there is some master design for them. I agree that the QotS is a bit….out there, but it’s by no means the ugliest thing to
Let’s can the harsh language. The new ones are, but have you seen any built before the 1,000 footers? They’re *beautiful*. The Edward L. Ryerson is [art](http://imgur.com/a/bSHrs), the Alpena has the lines of an [ocean liner](http://imgur.com/a/6wC6I), the Arthur M. Anderson is among the most
You’re very welcome. Please don’t have problems with strikes or jack up your prices and I won’t be forced to take my business down south. I’m actually surprised that despite the higher taxes and regulations in NY that it’s still the cheapest option outside
That’s the old Mystic Miss Geico… One of the turbines caught fire and she burnt to the water line. The new one runs 1650 Mercs and is a 43 Victory I believe.
I grew up watching this boat (among many others) throughout the summer at my grandparent’s cabin, at the mouth of the St. Mary’s River. I love seeing these boats, whether from a few miles away or from the observation platforms near the locks in
The ship’s electrical and mechanical systems would need to be completed in order to properly ballast and stabilize the hull for a long ocean-crossing voyage. The upper-structure doesn’t appear to be in place yet, so those systems aren’t complete. Also, tugs are very expensive,
I haven’t actually tipped my H16 yet. I think the water I go to is shallow and I’m afraid of letting the mast hit the bottom. I really should get one of though mast floats. when there has been a lot of wind, I’ve
Also, something of significance is in the back left of center there is a large white motor yacht named [Rising Sun](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rising_Sun_(yacht) which is the 11th largest private yacht in the world.
The Great Lakes can be terrifying. I’ve heard stories of seasoned ocean sailors that were awestruck at the severity of storms on the lakes.
That’s an insane co-op for a cadet, it’s only the shittiest jobs that leave you out to sea for that long these days. Still good to realize now that it’s not for you, there’s more money shoreside anyway (if you’re successful). Plus your wife
The wind on the Croatian shore is quite modest, unfortunately. Expect 10-15 knots on a good day. We once had 25 knots and while we were cheering, so many other boats sailed to the harbors. BUT, if there’s [Bora](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bora_%28wind%29), you can expect the wind
She’s made of fiberglass. The toe rails are solid mahogany though. The foredeck is covered in mahogany and holly ply, it’s the only thing about the boat is don’t like. For around $1M, they should use solid wood instead of veneers. We had lots
Many boats and ships are registered in Monaco for tax reasons but their home port could be anywhere in the world. That is why you often see luxury yachts in the Caribbean that have Guernsey or Monaco written on the back. Rich people saving
I thought the name was familar: in 1989 she received her present name after the wife of Paul R. Tregurtha, currently Vice Chairman of the Board of Interlake Steamship Company, the ship’s owner – See more at: http://duluthshippingnews.com/ship0357/#sthash.LiU3mDJX.dpuf The Paul R Tregurtha or “Fancy
All of the lakers still operating today have bow thrusters. Like you said, they put them forward for a better view in tight spaces. The problem with this is it’s very expensive and complicated to have control linkages running 700 odd feet, so it’s
Being a bulker the positioning of the pilothouse is unimportant, so having it forward makes navigation much easier for the crew. Most of the boats on the lakes were built before 1980, but newer boats do have it in the back because it’s cheaper
There are two variants of the LCS design. Two companies submitted their bids for the project; Austal with the ship design that became *Independence*, and Lockheed with their *Freedom* class. I’m not sure of the status of the Lockheed design (the govt had initially
You can read about it yourself instead of just taking one random redditor’s word as fact. > The CDC estimates that there are 23 million land-based Norovirus cases each year in the U.S., affecting one in 12 people, or 8% of the population. In
Below deck would be full too, or those containers you see wouldn’t have anything to sit on. For your answer, see ‘Trade deficit with China’.
Good point. I’m guessing they were only going to be moored there for a short time while the passengers had a swim. (There’s a bit of foreshortening from the camera lens, too, so it’s maybe not as bad as it looks.)

The ship is the [Asgard II](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asgard_II), the Irish sail training vessel which sank in 2008. My grandfather was the marine surveyor who oversaw her construction; she was a well-designed brigantine, he was skeptical of the findings of the investigation.
yep, Building the largest superyacht in the world apparently wasn’t enough for the owner of Azzam. They also wanted the fastest. > Yachting executives say that Azzam, the largest yacht in the world at 590 feet, recently went through its first set of sea
