Re: Watch how this ship flexes

..I remember was walking down the engineers passageways on a portacontainer under storm and saw how much the boat twisted, shrink, and do almost everything less put upside down.. scary moments!!!

I had a girlfriend that could bend like a Pretzel.

Re: Watch how this ship flexes

Maybe my fist boat (Oday 28) wasn't such a bad build, flexed all the time

Re: Watch how this ship flexes

Since this is becoming an engineering thread, lets step back to the basics.......

Re: Watch how this ship flexes

If these ships weren't as flexible as they are, the most sure thingis that they would crak on the first wave it crosses.

Re: Watch how this ship flexes

Flexing never bothered me but one ship I was on would roll way over and then seem to pause forever before recovering. Used to give me the willies as I lay in my bunk waiting....
