Re: There's that navy humidity reasoning again

In 1960 the ships sides / bulkheads were painted with black pitch ( which was also used on the inside of big circulating pumps for steam engine condensers ) in which was mixed loads of chopped up cork fragments. Not strirring it enough would result in the cork settling in the tin bottom and loads of...

Never met an accountant or politician who knew anything whatsoever about engineering.
They couldn't fit a match in a matchbox never mind fitting engineering components.

Re: MAN User Group

Well that puts somewhat of a turn on the situation and from my view puts an entirely different slant on things. So as I understand it Mr Man was conspicuous by his absence on your conference meet. So you are very much the stand a lone here and the only 48/60 CR operator present. All the rest are the...

Re: MAN User Group

Well there's a shocker indeed. You live and learn every day but I never expected that one. The initial reaction is one of thinking so the production run of this engine is over and thereby all prior problems are hereby eradicated and effectively zeroed and we all go on our happy way well satisfied. M...

Re: MAN User Group

Well apologies to Top Dead Centre here but this is one that I just cannot pass by. Whatever the letters after your name MUG does not sit well at all no matter how one looks at it. Member of the Institute of MUGS? Now hereby is a talk by TDC, first class MUG. Or introducing Chief MUG TDC? A CV to a p...

Re: What to Do ? Fire on the ship while in port.

Top Dead Centre, What about Mr MAN?

Let us all see if how many of us can swallow how much of the verdict, you never know when we think we have heard it all before we might learn a new reason for your CR defects.
Wager it's not Mr MAN 's fault?

Re: Hybrid Ships

Read the article with much interest but what about the battery side of things? Are they leased like many other hybrid applications owing to their horrendous initial costs? What exactly type of battery is used as capacities seem to be on the increase together with charging times being much lower. Won...

Re: Wireless Shore Power

Interesting video of " being suckered alongside " .
Wonder how long the pads last for, ship with a scraped hull ripping the suckers to pieces.
Vacuum pump used?
Vane pump? Diaphragm pump?
Wonder how many inches of mercury being drawn.
Just a thought.
Never met one yet.

Re: Wireless Shore Power
