Years ago I watched a programme on TV apparantly Volvo were hoping to build a ship to deliver cars to USA.
They were hoping the ship would steam at 40 knots in any weather.
We watched a model of the ship steaming at 40 knots in to a head sea every thing was fine,then they put the model running before the wind and she flipped or Turned Turtle,so it was a case of back to the drawing board.
Did anything come of this plan?.
