              What an amazing ship she was when she was launched as the Norway....

              A shame she is no longer.... a great loss for the whole world.

                If you look , you can see the maximum power of the ship : 175.000 Horse power during the test !!!

                        They many little numbers are the same as for a : " Race Car " !
                        The most important for the good life of a motor !
                        The temperature , pression and level of : Oil & Water .

                        - " Huile " is : Oil - " Eau " is : Water - " Temperature et Pression " is : the same in english - " Noeuds " : is Knots - " Turbine " is : Steam Turbine - " Pignon " is : Drive Pinion

                        During the trial the s/s FRANCE go " graduate up " with the power of here motors .

                        12 hours with 110.00 horses power , after 12 hours with 135.000 HP and 12 hours with 144.000 HP .
                        And finaly 6 hours with 150.000 and just after 6 hours with 175.000 HP !!!
                        I think during this 6 hours the s/s FRANCE made the speed record of 35.5 Knots !!!
                        After this maximum power level of all they engines the s/s FRANCE go graduate down with the power with the same shema . You can see a test with 31 knots (the normaly cruise speed of the Ship !) .

                        The many litlle numbers are just the consumption of oil on they many bearings (forward ,middle and stern) on the main drive shaft .
                        Not many differences just the temperature is a little higher on the full speed .
                        On one page you have on the right high corner , the temperature and pression of Water .

                        The normaly speed cruise (30 knots) was very easy for the engines of the s/s FRANCE .
                        But some time you have bad wheater in the North Atlantic ...
                        Our ship have never more as 12 hours delay of the official arrival time in here 12 years history in New York !
                        So you can imagine the Smoke on the Funnels with 175.000 Horse power ...
                        And this all was : " Made in FRANCE " !!! You can comparate the quality of they motors to a : " Swiss Watch " !
                        You have the Made in Germany or the Made in Japan , but for this Ship we build a Legend with the Best Product in our Time !!! And the result was Beautiful ...
                        Yes this Ship was realy a Superb and Great Liner ...

                        Some of us think 23 knots was fast onboard the s/s NORWAY , you was never onboard the s/s FRANCE with 33 Knots !!!
                        So now Captain you are the second most important person onboard the s/s FRANCE : the Mecanic Chief !!!

                        *But for the third most important onboard the s/s FRANCE : the Cooking Chief !
                        You have abseloutely " any chance "

                        So Jan , i hope you have more unterstand this old parameters .
