    The asymmetrical bows used by the A-n-d-a-m-an -ese fishermen remind me of the bows that were used by mounted Japanese Samurai. Tricky to use I imagine.

    Which reminds me of an old joke.

    Man: My wife is pestering me to buy her a car so she can drive.
    Buddy: What did you do?
    Man: I gave her a broomstick.

    I am working on a 1:100 model of this ship right now. Looks kind of like the front end of a super tanker that was chopped off.

    Vulkyn, thats historical technology and from what i can see a beautiful piece of workmanship. It looks wooden. Is there any way you can post the info on the plaque in English. I'm always amazed with the technologies and workmanship that existed in days gone by.

    Jolly,

    What is the purpose of that ship? I can't imagine what it would be good for, except creating volume for parties.

    It is for off shore seismic surveys. The boat's wide stern is designed to drag up to 24 seismic cables, capable of shooting seismic profiles of the rocks below the sea floor for over a 12 km² area.

    Wow this had to be the most advanced sub in the world in it's day.. First i've ever heard of it. Amazing engineering for it's time. Hard to believe just a very short time later these very basic machines evolved into the deadly stalkers of WW1.

    I remember seeing it for the first time and was amazed by its looks. I insisted i take some photo's because it was just so majestic with the wood construction.

    That is seriously weird. It reminds me of the old popovkas. What's it like in rough seas?
