this is an amazing photo Tom, sure does look like she is sinking. Was she rising or sinking in this shot?

I am not surprised, if I did not know any better, I would have thought the same as the landlubbers.

I too witness this back in the 80s, it was a vessel similar to this one, don't recall the name, it was in Quebec City , at the Davie Shipbuilding Lauzon, Quebec, across the river from Quebec City, it was taking a jackup drilling plafform , one of the Grand Island series,? to the Gulf of Mexico, I was on the drill rig on official business just before she was moved, one small anecdote, the submersable vessel was arrested for hooking on to cables on the river bed after dropping the anchor in a unauthorised area.

Once again a fine shot of her. Remember i saw this kind of ship for the first time, thought it was VERY strange. It was the ferncarrier.
Now the asian atlas
