He's trying to tell me that my suggestion regarding foam fill voids on the ship is impossible to achieve. I do not know who is in this business, but I think that it is mandatory to introduce new legislation , such as a requirement to double bottom and sides . These provisions were introduced , despite a large increase in the cost of ships. Thanks to saved many lives . Here 's that simple calculation This ferry has dimensions of 10 mx 15 m = 160 m ^ 2 part flotation technique 150 x 146 = 21900 m ^ 3 ( cubic ), meaning that he does not have to sink to be additionally about 5,000 tons displacement , which is 5000 empty space to fill with foam .. it is about 20% of the flotation technique space ship .. So simply if the ship was higher by 20% , it would surely already
be unsinkable . costs of those that do not have anything open spaces of the ship , filled with foam , would not be higher than 10 % of the total vessel. So money is not the real motive here that so far does not. Even now considering that insurance ( Loyd ) found that both theoretically and practically can not sink would have to be much smaller. Insurance , relatively high pay each year , when the ship is being used .. or even 20 years. I think the insurance collected annually from submersible vessel in the sum is certainly greater than the 10 % percent increase in the cost of the ship. I think that when it comes to passenger vessels , this should be the rule , because human life has no price .. And please do not convince me that it should not be . Because something is not possible. It is possible , and therefore publish this , where professionals from the safety of the vessels may be reading this ..
