@double maxim away mate where are you.
Ahhhh that's it!!! My mistake.
Went on a walk along the coastal footpath from Latimers to Whitburn/Souter lighthouse on Saturday and you could see it from up there sticking out on the skyline.
There once was a lad called Alladin
Who had a magic Lamp
He stole it off a Matelot who was fathoms up a tramp
He stole it off a Matelot to see what he could get
And he rubbbed and rubbed and rubbed and rubbed
But he ain't got Fuck all yet
La de da fiddle dee
60 annas equals one rupee
feed of arse up a sycamore tree
poor bugger Janner
The Sultan saidf to Alladin
my palace you will paint
Alladin like a big OD said - No I fuckin aint
So he armed himself with a paintbrush and a pot of black enamel
and he shoved it up the Arsehole of the sultan's favourite camel
And we'll all go back to Oggie land (where's that)
to Oggie land (where's that )
And we'll all go back to Oggie land
Where they cant tell ???? from tissue paper tissue paper marmalade and jam
Vessel details for: MPI DISCOVERY (Offshore Supply Ship) - IMO 9530096, MMSI 246741000, Call Sign PCFF Registered in Netherlands | AIS Marine Traffic
Canny site of you are interested in seeing what is about. Flight radar for ships.
It's a jack up rig, surely everyone on this board knows what one is after the Xcite Energy jack up rig was followed on maritime GPS tracking sites every inch of its journey halfway around the world
Had a cycle along the river path tonight. It's a bloody impressive sight that. Good to see on the Wear.
Technically, it's a vessel, not a rig.
Cellus is the name of the ship, green, white and yellow, there’s another ship same colours but I forget it’s name.
Not a rig marra.
No drilling derrick or machinery on this baby.
Same fucking thing to us land lubbers, there's only two of you on this thread and big semenstains six who either know or care. BTW when does a boat become a ship?
Boats go under water, ships go above.
BTW -a ship can carry a boat, but a boat cannot carry a ship.
Well this is just confusing as fuck. Can you get a big boat that is bigger than a small ship or does it go on size?
All to do with size basically.
A google search also throws up the theory that if a boat turns right it will lean (or whatever the nautical term for leaning is, bank or pitch or something) to the right, when a ship turns to the right it will lean to the left. Is this right?
A lot to do with size, keel design, rudders etc.
Mostly but not necessarily. When a ship does a steady turn it will generally heel outwards. When the rudder is initially put over the force acting through the rudder acts instantly, before the force acting through the hull has a chance to build up. This can cause the ship to heel inwards. Then the hull force overtakes that of the rudder and the ship heels outwards. If the rudder angle is suddenly taken off at the point of changeover then the angle of heel can become excessive and potentially dangerous. I've got the maths for it on Powerpoint but it's dull unless you like Nav Arch.
Other ship / boat considerations? Size. Areas of trade. Boats usually in sheltered/close-in/harbour waters and canals. Ships generally built for international or deep-sea trade. Class I / II classification. Ships require a freeboard deck (continuous deck capable of being made watertight) for the preservation of reserve buoyancy. Plimsoll and Deck line markings. Boats may only require Seawater and Freshwater load markings to reflect density difference between the two. When a ship sinks you get into a boat. When a boat sinks you get into the water. Boats mostly regarded as pleasure craft. No hard and fast rules though as both categories overlap each other and the only real cure for seasickness is to sit under a tree.
No definitive answer of Boat v Ship though.
Remember the crowds that turned to see Nasas Crusader and Nordic Chieftan launched from North Sands back in the mid 70s ,some something like 158,000 tonnes,the biggest ships ever launched on the Wear until Thatcher worked her magic
