    The panic was growing proportionally to the water level:

    Guess the next scene was cut because it was showing the execution of NAs and engineers working on this one. :D

    Guess you are referring to the greatly educative thread "Naval Architects are waste of money". That was the first thing that came to mind too when I saw the video.
    I was also thinking of this - if this is the quality of their NAs and engineers, I guess perhaps it's better the thing sank immediately, rather than a month later with 150 persons on board...

    Yep, that one . . :)

    But in this case, launch ramp to steep or bad boat or both . . ? ?

    Anyway, they gonna fix it, maybe we see it back with some sponsons added, if so than it was the boat to blame . . :rolleyes:

    Right :idea:

    Cheers,

    Suggestion for next time- put the staging under the boat and give the pillows to the reviewers. How do you say "Hey guys, hang on a second" in Chinese? What do they use the big pillows for when they aren't being used to sink boats? Bizarre.

    Another reason why you should hire a Naval Architect.

    Be sure to have a good one, see a lot of ferries with later added sponsons. Heavier load later on in life, new safety regulations, badly designed, I don't know, anyway food for thought . . . . . . . . .

    Some examples . . . . . (not from China :p)

    MS Moby Otta, former Princess of Scandinavia.

    ‘‘ Launched: November 4th 1975 -- To conform to new safety regulations the Princess of Scandinavia was rebuilt with side sponsons in January–March 1998 at Gdańsk Shiprepair Yard in Poland. ’’


    I wonder how good/safe she was without the sponsons in the first place . . ? ?


    Tekno Consulting ---> Projects --> Structure


    [​IMG]

    M/V Sardinia Vera, side sponsons added.


    [​IMG]

    M/V Mega Express Five, stern sponson added.


    [​IMG]

    M/V Ile de Beautè, stern sponson added.


    Cheers :eek:

    So, what's the reason for these add-ons, all so similar to each other? Did the rules for ferry ship stability dramatically change at some point of their lifetime?
