  1. The Engine Room
    A question for the engineers from a former R/O. In 1986 I was working on a Greek built product tanker (Brassie/3FCG) as R/O. We were crossing the Pacific with a following sea and the ship was surfing. As the stern rose the prop was briefly relieved of its full load sometimes and when this...
