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?
Top 1000 Boat Pictures
[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.
With all the govt. budget cuts, especially in areas like culture and musea, I suspect the general willingness is quite low. Also keep in mind that the processes and materials have improved _hugely_ in the time between these two ships. Also, in terms of
Yup, but it was laid down in 1986 according to wikipedia. As soon as I saw the ship I thought to myself “Now that’s some Soviet design”
Sadly, no. You would be very surprised at the astonishing lack of high quality junk pictures. Most pictures are either taken with a potato or its a terrible angle/light. The one I posted was the one I thought was the most pornographic. lol
Here she is at Mare Island 1946 (9th from the left, very top row). My grandfather was assigned to the Pacific Fleet as a submarine mechanic and spent most of the war at Midway island assigned to the USS Pilotfish, and the USS Billfish
I would think so, but they have been doing this at least since the sixties. We had a new car delivered from Seattle this way in 1968. It did rust out within 10 years, but being on an island couldn’t have helped either. Some
I guess it depends on where you’re coming from. If you are a salty mariner, that sails on this and that and everything, I guess it might be old [news](http://articles.maritimepropulsion.com/article/From-SWATH-to-SWASH-Further-development-at-AbekingRasmussen48124.aspx). In basic terms the speed is unusual, I guess. With a length of 24m
I check the local craigslist boats ads daily and have done for a few years now. this guy kept trying to get rid of this boat. it was covered so you couldn’t really see it and he had been trying get rid of it
Right outside the Pithlacascotee River. If you use google earth (google maps tries to find address, in error), you’ll see an odd bald spot in the sea grass, thats were we swim. 28° 17.000N 82° 45.656W
Rudder I think is what you were going for there. And yes, they do. Huge amount of lateral resistance when you try and turn one of those bad boys. This boat is a wonder honestly. It has projectors that shine on the sail to
There can’t be any way that’s a real picture. I there somewhere magical I should look to see it as real?
Thanks “As they reached the turning blades, both lifeboats, together with their occupants, were torn to pieces.” As if a sinking ship isn’t bad enough.
An absolute beast! I’m told that this particular Russian ship is outfitted a lot better than most, with comfy staterooms and things you’d normally only find on western vessels.
Unfortunately I only got a photo of the bridge on the enclosed bridge model – the right-most of the three. View post on imgur.com There’s new car smell, new plane smell, new house smell – but they all pale in comparison to new yacht
It’s a [Bermudan ensign](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Bermuda), not to be confused with the very similar [Cayman ensign](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Civil_Ensign_of_the_Cayman_Islands.svg). Edit: and it’s owned by [this guy](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrey_Melnichenko).
The vessel made this journey in 1971, and was launched in 1972. Lakers are built in all sorts of different ways, with most being built on the lakes and especially Frasier shipyard in Duluth. To my knowledge the Cort was the only laker built
