        Wonderful to join you on a tour over those ships. If you have to work on them, that is clearly to see, all nostalgic feelings disappear at once! Of course as a worker i would prefer the new one. For vacation this is something else. Great new thread!!

          I wonder why this color was so popular? I call it "Public Bathroom Green" and, in the day, it seems to have been used EVERYWHERE!

          This is a SUPER COOL thread, Ombugge!!!!!!

              Bulk Carriers (or Ore carriers) have been prominent in the discussion in other threads lately, so I though I would bring out some pictures of a standard IHI B-60 "Capesize" bulk/ore carrier, the "Sumihou", built in Japan in 1996, 171,000 DWT, 289 m. Loa.

              These pictures were taken in Chiba, Japan in April, 2009 as part of a Condition Survey for potential sale to a Chinese buyer. She has most likely changed name since then.

              Let's start from the Bow:


              Between there and the stern is 9 holds/hatches. This hatch is open:


              The most interesting bit is at the stern. The Superstructure:

                  Since the Berge Istra sinking a 6-men life raft is placed Fwrd. on ships of the type/size:


                  The Hatch Covers slides off sideways:

                  This is Hatch # 1, which is not symmetrical.

                    The Cargo Holds on a vessel like this is just large open spaces:


                    The bulkhead between them are normally corrugated, not framed:

                        Big ship but small crew so the Lifeboats are also small:


                        Life Rafts are also available on either side:

                          But let us get up on the Bridge:

                          Voyage Data Recorder placed on Monkey Island:

                          Same function as the so called "black boxes" on air crafts. It will free float if the ship sinks.

                                Had they been read and understood?? I don't know, I was doing an S&P Survey, not a Safety Audit.
