Nice! An excellent perspective exercise.

Yes Roberto, you are right. A rather difficult task, especially the twin screws and rudders. Good reflections too.

Ian, at left in the painting I see three pale blue stripes above the wall of the drydock. I think it might be a building with all glass? Just curious.

Stephen. Thanks for kind words.
The building in blue is a fabrication shed. The light blue just happens to be the colour HHI use for their sheds. Ironically the light gray srtipes are the glazed areas. I used a scale rule to plot the key points. Difficult to avoid ending up with a 'technical drawing'. Unusually the twin screws turn inwards looking from aft. Classic rule was outwards for ship handling but she could be turned using them contra rotating if you turned to stbd.

Roberto thanks also. I had to use a big canvas board to get the details.

We were given a painting of the vessel done by professional marine artist Robert Lloyd which we mounted onboard on commissioning.

This inspired me to have a go!

Thanks.

Quadruple vessels some time male the outer screws are outward turning and the inner screws are inward turning. Gets the best water flow past the rudder. In you ship, yes, I can see the inward propeller would get a good flow to meet in the middle and between the two rudders.

The gas tankers are rather interesting. I 'found' a full GA plan of a new Chevron vessels. So well designed they must be a delight to sail in.

Ian:
Yes, an interesting composition and an interesting perspective, literally and figuratively. I like how you used the figures and vehicles to give a further sense of scale to the scene. I, too, find gas tankers to be very interesting and remember with fondness the star-crossed El Paso Natural Gas vessels built at Newport News years ago.

Thanks David.
Like the large Cruise Ships, it's difficult to grasp the sheer size of these vessels without reference to familiar objects.
I remember the El Paso ships. Innovators are always liable to find the problems awaiting.
