    I think she is too top-heavy looking.

    It would have to unless a 20 foot draft with iron 10 feet below the water line...she's tall enough to be influenced by wind patterns developed by Starlink satellites.

    On a positive note, thousands of people from conception to direct labor and on throughout the supply chain made wages for years off this project - and that's all good.

    As far as the end result, no matter how much dough I could afford to blow I would look at this thing and say why the hell did I do that.

    Just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.

    Not to pile on here but Vripack must be re-calculating their damping coefficients to calculate how many staterooms will be lost to the addition of the hordes of Seakeeper 90"s (yet to be built or engineered) needed to be installed.

    This is what rings to my ear. Sure, it's pretty on the horizon. How the heck does the captain remain centered on that bridge while backing down on a marlin in an 8 foot swell?
