Re: Biggest Boat
The essential difference bewteen VLCC and these Mearsk monsters is that the containers ships cruise at 20 knots. From horizon to your boat in 12 minutes and no way they're going to have time to turn.
If you're in their path you have a crisis on your hands even in the middle of the day.
