I love these... I am a marine engineer currently working on ships. Its so funny because I've gone from worried about the guy who has done something bad and have to tell your boss. We'll now I am the guy that has to call the office and say one of my guys just screwed something up which of course falls back on you. God, I can't imagine having to call the office to be like hey, you know that 600' we have? We'll its time to look into making it a 300' barge and a 300' ship.

That's funny...

How does a ship break like that, not in heavy seas? Amazing.

Well it broke it's back is broken because of the load. Also ship was older and due to dry dock but the Indian owner didn't want to pay for steel to replace warn bent steel at last dry dock as it was in north america she was due a 2 week dry dock to replace steel in China as cost was a factor. She didn't make it

Large ships are designed to flex/twist so they don't break in two. The flexing is known as hogging. Older ships had expansion joints newer ones twist and flex (hog) along plate welds.

Watch the video you'll see how a ship hogs. After spending 31 years in the Navy I can tell you for sure when your in real nasty weather you can tell how your ship is riding just by the motion and sound of the twisting/hogging.

Yea. Several years ago I was talking to a ship captain the had moved up from a breakbulk ship to a large iron ore ship with no cranes on deck. I asked him if he was glad for the move to a larger vessel and he said that it scared him to death with all of the flexing it did.

The photos are very rare but feel very sad for that a boat contain a lot of expensive good with the efforts to build it.

Thats an interesting video, Im sailing as Chief Mate now, and Ive never seen flex like that, granted Ive been on tankers and dry cargo ships mostly, but never seen anything that pronounced.

Nothing like built by the lowest bidder Id say!!!

We did snap the house from the hull on an ATB one time in the GoM, wave created a pocket in the notch, bow of the tug fell right in, pivoted on the pins and banged fwd.....house separated from the hull weld lines in dozens of places.....engineer took pics with a cell phone and sent to the office was we were transiting through the oil patch!!!
