    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.

    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!!
