Re: JS Shirase

I would expect it is low pressure, high volume. when I worked in the Arctic, you were running pretty well on full recirc, with the returns either going back to the seachest or seabay depending on temp settings. My preferece was to run seabay temperatures up around 24*C to stop alarms. The emergency ...

Re: JS Shirase

He Merlyn, its water lubrication for the hull to make passage though the ice easier. The ship is up on a ridge of ice, trimmed by the stern, or light. Not sure. A lot of breakers use air lubrication.

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.

"Ken Hansen, a military analyst and retired naval commander living in Dartmouth." Exactly what I thought. Talking out of his ass. Spares! LOL We were so cash strapped that we used to take equipment off one ship and give it to another. We had one of the fellows store every old piece of equ...

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...
