QUEENS MEET AGAIN!







Last Sunday, June 10, was a big day for Green Sea Ships as the scale luxury liners QUEEN ELIZABETH and the flagship QUEEN MARY met for only the 2nd time on the water.

Unlike the February joint sailing, this time there were no technical problems interferring with the voyage and things went smoothly for over half an hour! The voyage couldn't reasonably go much longer due to the heat. It got pretty warm around noon.

My wife Maico commanded the Queen Mary for most of the voyage while I drove the Lizzie. Unfortunately, the Lizzie has sprung a leak which is described as "serious" in the area of her propellor shaft. A considerable amount of water made it into the hull.

Astonishingly, even with all this water in the hull, the hull NEVER became soggy or lost any structural integrity. That special 3-layer bottom of foamcore board is more resiliant than originally anticipated!

The Lizzie is in drydock now for repairs but for the Mary, it was another smooth sailing with no signs of any technical trouble. She is suddenly becoming one of the most reliable boats in the Green Sea Fleet!
