Admin Edit: This thread is a continuation from the original thread, located here... http://www.yachtforums.com/forums/g...ern-marine-90-yacht-capsizes-upon-launch.html I would like to comment on the latest comment in the original thread, made by captain J. It said: "Have you seen pictures of most of the latest cruise ships out of the water? They make the N M look totally sea worthy, yet you never hear of a cruise ship rolling over.....There's a little more to seaworthiness than how the vessel looks out of the water......It all depends on the center of gravity and where all of the weight is located." That is true. however, it is also true that a higher ship has a higher vertical gravity point. So the chance of things going wrong is bigger. Also, we had 2 cruise ships collapsing the last years. If the Northern Marine would have had one less deck, things might have turned out different..... And in my opinion it is just very strange to build a trideck yacht of just 90". There is a very good reason that you hardly see any trideck 90" yachts around: stability.
