The ship is very light going by the picture. Water lubrication for the hull.
I am very curious about how this operates in colder temperatures. They would need a huge seabay to provide enough water, heat it somehow, and a big pump.

It gets under the subflooring and goes all though that deck and lays against the steel for years. I wonder what their deck camber is. The wat...
