This is really an interesting thread!!
And thanks for taking out the time to answer all the queries, though I suspect the A.S.S query may remain unanswered!!

Am wondering whether it will influence any purchase decisions though??
Actually the Sea Trials are a requirement of the Classification Society. The shipyard carries out the trials and the Class surveyors and owners representives witness it. The purchase decision is already made a long time ago

Is that you in front of ship ?
I could see half of the ship is Under Water, Or do i have some problem with my eyes ?
That's me. That's the ship in rough seas. The ship is going into the trough of the wave. The snap was taken by another ship of our company.

But i guess its some kind of high tide which must have struck the ship creating an illusion that its submerged in water!
High tide raises the level of water evenly. You can't notice it on the high seas.

How do you communicate during sail? Will you be out of net in sail?
That's a chemical tanker. At sea we have a satellite phone. We get telephone, fax and e-mail. Also the old radio communications. Now some ships also have full fledged internet.

And how about the maintenance of the ships?? Do you have A.S.S!!:lol!:
General maintanence like painting is done by the ship staff. Also overhauling of the engine, generators etc. Sometimes service is provided by the individual manufacturers of the various equipments. The shipyard provides a 1 year guarantee for the structure.

I suspect the A.S.S query may remain unanswered!!
You are proved wrong!

Yeah, but the TCR will be a bit more than a Scorpio!!
You bet it is.
