The MALS system itself is relatively simple, as well as the arrangement on board, which I have seen in my MHI days.

Still, what troubles me is this huge amount of bubbles blown beneath the hull. Cavitation effect, anybody?

Anyhow, I'd like to see her out of the dock and running ASAP.

It reminds me of "Laminar Flow", which Boeing introduced to Boeing 787-800 and 787-900, - but quit it again for 787-1000 - because the advantages that were were found in the laboratory could not be reproduced in real life - and were actually rather espensive to maintain.

Perhaps Mitsubishi's fabled MALS (Mitsubishi Air Lubrication System) acting up?

Really, it makes you wonder what is wrong with her...

First she was scheduled for sea trials, went out of the dock, only to come back inside two days later. Then she finally went on her sea trials, came back, went on her second leg of sea trials, and now she's back in her "cradle". That's a rather strange procedure, if everything is OK...

What is wrong with this this ship?

You dont take it back to the dry dock for minor issues...?

@samtmendher: We don't speak Spanish on this site, pictures of this ship are rare and besides, it's up to the Admins to make decisions about deleting pics, not angry members complaining about other people's pics.

As her original delivery was scheduled for March 2015, first rescheduled +6 months, and then again for another 6 months, I think that everybody is now at peace with this fact - so the priority should be to deliver a good ship...

You better hurry up, Mitsubishi! More than one year late and some 250 mio Dollar loss per ship!
