@Syke_Minadzuki
DDG-56「ジョン・S・マケイン」を積載した重量物運搬船TREASURE、予定より大幅に遅れて本日到着。

錨泊地にはDDG-62「フィッツジェラルド」を積載し米国へ向け出航待機していたTRANSSHELFの姿が。

損傷したDDGを積んだ同じ会社の重量物運搬船が同一地点で顔を合わせるという前代未聞に事態に。

My Navy son said that if it's surface it's a ship and if goes under water on purpose it's a boat. That's a Navy Nuke Petty Officer telling Dad. Chris

A couple years ago we were touring the Wisconsin. As we were heading to gangplank my girlfriend turned to my daughter and said "This is a really big boat." Well there happened to be a retired sailor walking just ahead of us and he turned and sternly said "This is a ship. Do you know what's the difference between a boat and a ship? You can put a boat in a ship but you can't put a ship in a boat." He started to crack a smile when he saw the "Oh shit" look on her face. LOL

Ikai Jinoshima Tomari ni wa DDG-62 "Fitzgerald" o sekisai shi Beikoku e muke shuukou taiki shite ita TRANSSHELF no sugata ga.

Heavy goods carrier TREASURE, loaded with DDG-56 "John S. McCain", arrived today significantly behind schedule.

In the anchorage area, it appeared to rendezvous with the TRANSSHELF, loaded with DDG-62 "Fitzgerald", which was waiting for departure to the US.

It is unprecedented for heavy goods carriers of the same company, loaded with damaged DDG (guided missile destroyers), to appear at the same point.

What does a "heavy goods carrier" normally carry besides these destroyers or other smaller ships? Oil rig equipment? I'm just wondering what other types of outsize cargo would they be designed to carry.

Pretty much anything it wants to Razz

But seriously, they transport everything from oil rigs to wind generators.
There is a big business in transporting private yachts between the US and the Med. they will load up a bunch at once.

Yeah, I can see that being the case. I didn't think of that, but it makes a lot of sense. Transporting a bunch of yachts to the Med, the Caribbean, Middle East, etc.

Wow. There's no hype in your thread title.

I thought I'd already seen some impressive nautical sights: the USS Enterprise from top to bottom in dry dock and many submarines from top to bottom in dry dock.

But seeing them destroyers being carried piggy back on ships across open sea, that really is a sight.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

I'm sure that would be a fearsome sight to the enemy to see them attacking headlong at you like that.

Most of Dockwise ships were origionally built for BP to build 1 deepwater oil rig. They were then sold by BP to dockwise. Dockwise Yacht Transport uses most of them for shipping yachts all over the world. I have loaded and unloaded well over a 100 yachts on their various ships over the years. Basically the transom of the ship goes down on most of them, the ship takes on ballast and sinks 7-12' depending on the depth of the yachts, divers then weld cradles underneath each yacht, ship pumps out ballast water and refloats and yachts are high and dry sitting on cradles, and then strapped. Think of the rear of the ship like a pickup truck bed.......Shipping yachts is a huge business and I have personally loaded/unloaded close to 1000 yachts from freighters for companies such as Dockwise, Sevenstar, United, etc. It's not just the med. South Florida to Med is one of the major routes. The other major route is South Florida-Costa Rica-Mexico-Victoria-Vancouver-Japan. But I have loaded yachts that have gone all over (aside from those places) Guam, Vietnam, China, Dubai, and on and on. If a yacht is shipped from Med to say Victoria, it goes on 2 different ships, so I'll unload it from the one ship, take it to a marina, then load it on the 2nd ship when it comes in......usually 40-70 yachts go on a ship and the ship is usually packed to the brim with the yachts 1' apart. If anyone wants pics, let me know. Dockwise, most of their ships ONLY carry yachts. The other shipping companies such as Sevenstar and United, use traditional freighters and they carry raw material in the hold (steel, grain, etc.) and the yachts on the deck. This is one of the things I specialize in.
