Ships and Vessels

Post Sun Aug 24, 2008 2:10 pm


They have been around about as long as we have and they still are the only way to move large quantities around the planet. Give us a few examples of any size of these amzing objects which displace water and defy gravity.

Here, a Liquified Petroleum Gas carrier, the Norgas Traveller, arrives at the Port of Houston.

Actually, they do. A ship's design determines a balancing act in which the vessel floats, thereby offsetting gravity. Try working with me with the metaphor.

Here's an oldie but a goodie, Point Vigour in Halifax Harbour near the Hotel Nova Scotian in 1984....

These images are from the Festival of Sail 2008 in San Diego and were taken August 23-24, 2008. I'm still adding to the gallery.
