Re: Freighter Destroys US Bridge

It is bow down a little bit. But that is one tough boat.

Re: Freighter Destroys US Bridge

I was down in the Tampa area back in the late90's was crossing a bridge , on on side was an empty bridge on the other was one under construction...all of a sudden the "empty one" stopped ( it had turned into a fishing pier). Made me wonder if the one they were building was in preparation for the one I was on falling down...I found out later a barge had taken the other out.

Re: Freighter Destroys US Bridge

I looked at the picture of the freighter, and I think it was a simple misunderstanding. The captain thought the front of his ship was a "bridgedeck". If he didn't have a bridgedeck before, he sure has one now.
