    I'm a little confused [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif[/img] as I couldn,t find that quote on that site.If it is true then it would suggest it was authentic and it did survive without sinking.

    I'd have to agree with Paully in regards to the first picture. Boat is definitely out of line.

    The photos are authentic.

    EDIT: I have seen these photos ages ago. The ship seems out of line because a great deal of it is under water.

    Authentic or not you'd have to agree on the first pic the boat does look like it's bent way over. No?

    Just view the roof on that raised section 2/3rds towards the back of the boat. Follow the side angle of the roof to the bow, and you would realize that most of the boat is under water.

    Every time I see that photo, I think to myself...that was a very close call.

    It would seem the captain agreed with you as he thought the same thing.

    I agree with Chako, the images appear to be real. The fact that most of the right side of the boat is submerged make it appear bent. I spent a lot of time working on these type of ships years ago, but only when docked. Some sailors on-board described just this type of thing. Given the size of these ships, the fact that they are tossed around like this is amazing.....of course, Tippy, this could be a photoshopped picture of that melon I used in the moon thread - floating in a bathtub!

    OK, I was bored. I took the third picture in the first post, rotated it 2 degrees, adjusted the scale, and superimposed it on the first picture. As you can see, they line up almost perfectly.
