Hi Simon, just give a look to Frederik's account you will see more picture of that same ship unloading those big cranes she carried..... Sure the Captain of the Zen Hua 8 must always check the weather before leaving port.

Best regards, Robert08 :lol:

Hi Robert

Yeah, I myself have never seen anything like that before. I'm thinking the weight to one of the sides must be big when the ship is hit by waves from the side.

Hi Simon, it looks almost incredible to me that those kind of Heavy Load Carrier could sail.... But as we often say : an image worths 1000 words.... That must be a physical miracle.

Thanks to share, robert08 :-D
