IAm A Ship Captain back from the world's most ginormously monstrous ship
Got a question about the largest moving object built by man?
IAmA former ship captain who's sailed the world avoiding pirates, rogue waves and other scourges of the seven seas. I loved it but, not being a particularly brave, well endowed or trained in the art of anti-pirate ninjutsu, I became a landlubber and a maritime blogger after my son was born. Now I write about ships from my corner office at Starbucks.
So last month Maersk invited the world's top 10 maritime journalists to an exclusive tour of the world's largest ship, currently under construction in South Korea. Sadly I wasn't invited but, after reading a couple Kevin Mitnick novels, I managed to finagle a seat on the tour bus!
The ship was amazing, a true giant, and I meet the engineers, naval architects and shipyard workers building her.... and I learned a lot about this ginormous vessel.
I'm willing to answer questions about her or any other ships.
