Ships In The Stormy Sea

I have a deep respect for the ocean and never take things likely, I always know that things could take a turn for the worse and u never know whats below. And this video only demonstrates that even the biggest and most well prepared ships have difficulty in the vast ocean. It is intimidating and mesmerizing at the same time, the waves are tossing around the battleship like its a toy.

The Maltese Falcon

Now this is a definition of a super yacht, at 289-ft the Maltese Falcon is the world’s largest and most expensive sailing yacht. I’m not one who is that interested in Sailing yachts but this is not an ordinary yacht, with technology integrated into every corner. Especially that mast system which can propel the yacht across the Atlantic in 10 days. Even the cockpit of this ship reminds me of the bridge on the Star Ship Enterprise from Star Trek, at a moments notice it will take warp into space with all those buttons and cool seats.

I do like the interior of this beautiful ship, I don’t even know how many rooms it has and how many people it can handle but it is amazing for sure. And it was for a low price of $99 Million, I’m just curious as to fees of parking this behemoth.

Cable Cutting UAE

Now we have some explanation for the internet failures we have faced over the past couple of months from one area to another. Hopefully no more cables will be cut any time soon.

Turns out the United Arab Emirates took two ships into custody on February 19th after those infamous cable cuttings. Wayward anchors are suspected to be at fault, and the Korean company responsible for one of the vessels just agreed to fork over 60 grand in damages in exchange for the release of its ship. The other ship, which is owned by an Iraqi company, is still under Dubai custody, and the two sailors on board were arrested and are awaiting prosecution next week. As for us, we’re standing by our space aliens in league with garden gnomes theory. It all just adds up.
