"taking a bow"

hi phil
no only that, it could be simply a inspection of the shaft seal and measuring in order to avoid a DD and making then further surveys regarding Load Line/Safety Construction and Class Hull. Simply for cost reasons. I did that three times in my masters carrier until now.

Ships in drydock can sometimes be triggered by casualties, but on shipspotting we don't consider them casualties, nor post photos of them in the casualty category. They are simply in drydock undergoing repairs. This ship is simply undergoing repairs, but not in drydock.

yes bob
but who knows if the problem is not result of a grounding during maneuvre in a port. Backwards into a buoy for example, it happens, in that instance it would be a Casualty. Very unlickly that a seal starts "just" like that leaking and a rudder damage is most probably triggered by some kind of circumstance which falls most probsbly under Casualty
(Fishnet at sea comes to mind too )

What I meant was that this is not a casualty. It has not run aground. It is not sinking. It is a normal and quite common shiprepair procedure. The ghoulish members of this site who like looking at ships in distress have been getting excited unnecessarily!

Bob,,yes and no, they would not do it when the ship would not have a problem, either with the seal or the rudder, but the way it is, looks like the seal

Is that possible with the big cruiseships too? Would be nice to see such a shot.

There is no problem with this ship. She has merely been ballasted down by the head to allow repairs in the area of the rudder or propeller
