This is greta's parents back yard, they have totally taken onboard about global warming and are preparing for the influx of wet weather that will engulf the world, but they forgot to take into account the possibility of wildfires.

'Fake news'?........ :-X  ......this is an older [reversed Pears shaped] style bolbus bow....possible 20 years old?


1. can you determine the accuracy of the Draft Marks?..[toward the waterline, they appear to be reversed {in depth}]
2. is the location purported as a Norwegian Fjord?
3. the internals of vessels bulbous bow are a labyrinth of criss-crossed welded structural elements .......cannot see any here?
4. bulbous bows are pressed up....ie., filled with ballast water to improve design strength stability..... no evidence of water-marking
5. the only time a bulbus bow is 'emptied' or drained of water would be in Dry Dock


 ;) %) :o :} ...Photoshop  :-))

Simply an observation TT..... does it really matter?.......to me it's all OK to offer a comment?


To my inquiring mind, I find curious elements in the image, surely exercising this thought does not suggest I have bounded outside the boundaries?


Afterall, I did preface my post as Fake News?

If we see another view or story that confirms the vessel collided with an Iceberg %)  ....I will happily laugh O0
