No backearther, this is not as rough as it gets - and you need not check if the doors are in the right place on the wheelhouse either  %)

Norman quickly realized he had grossly underestimated the amount of laminate flooring that he was going to need.

So what happens when the ship is low on fuel & water, and has 2 electric motors out for rewind? >>:-( ......how does she register a greater draft under 42'?


....or am I missing something?  %) 


Bring back Metric Roman numerals O0  or is it Roman Numerals in Metric {-)             ..... IVII   .....

[not sure that the majority really understand how important a vessels Draft Marks represent, also taking into consideration the salinity & temperature of the water etc., etc]

I like that.  ROFL.  Looks like a "Topps Tile" job to me -the rest is on back-order (be here next week) honestly.

I got that wrong :embarrassed: ...... could it be 4.8, 4.6, 4.4 and 4.2......yes IV.II, but in Roman metric units of a metre?

The staircase to the Dock crane may tell some of the real story, as we also see it is not a flat floored Drydock, but a Dock with a floor tapering at an angle toward [assumed] water, .......so how do they get the vessel to float, as by the bow, the vessel is near on dry land?

Or is this Dock in Dubai, or somewhere near the Dead Sea?.......where all ships float on top of the water and have ZERO draft :P
The only other possible explanation is this image was snapped before they found the World was round, hence a flattish earth

Or is this another of Martins dodgy fake draft images? %)

It may be a Voith Schneider rotor propulsion system to you , but to Granny it's a great wool winder for her knitting.

Or - it could be a slipway dock like of old except instead of greasing the rails the ship is on several railcars and simply rolls down the rails into the water, when the boats gone winch the rail cars back up the slip way - simples.


Granny must be using large balls of yarn to fit them winders
