  1. how can someone sell a helicopter that has failures like this where if you stick the de icers on you loose so much power and dont have a screen

  2. Why don't they design this idea i just had watching this, Have a laser directed from the helicopter to the ship so that a computer takes over the hover maintaining the exact distance from the heli to the ship.
    When the ship goes up & down in the waves the heli would decrease & increase height automatically mirroring the ships movements….
    Plus instead of sending that wire down that can only pick up one person at a time, why can't it have a 2 man harness which 2 men can easily get into, picking up all of the people in half the time!
    So you send the man down on the wire & pick up 2 men plus the man on the wire…

  3. They CAN lift 2 at a time but are considering having to leave people aboard because they can't lift them without a health & safety officer alongside them? Jesus… set the guy on the ship, have him explain what to do, hook them in, and get the heck out of there.

  4. 2003 salvage[edit]

    On May 1, 2002, Camilla was laid up in the port of Mariehamn, Finland. According to the Finnish investigation report, maintenance work on the ship was intended to be carried out during the lay-up, but did not actually take place. On December 31, 2002 the ship departed Mariehamn for Canada in ballast for a cargo of paper. During the sailing, it was noticed that the ship's fuel had been contaminated with water, requiring a transition to burning light oil, and that engine lubrication oil required continuous filtering. The exhaust valves of the main engine also saw attention many times during the trip. After loading her cargo in Dalhousie, New Brunswick, Canada, the ship left for England on January 19, 2003. On Jan 23rd 05.40z the main engine stopped at sea, causing a black out. The engine failed with alarms and was restarted several times each time with some increasingly worrying signs of disrepair. At 09.36z it was discovered that one of the crank shaft bearings was overheating with mechanical noise emerging from several of the cylinders. At 10.45z the engine was declared inoperative. The engineers initially set out to repair the engine, but the master's decision at 13.48z that the ship would be evacuated halted the work. A hurricane was closing in, the repairs would take up to 36 hours, and even in the best case the ship's propulsion would be limited. The ship was then at 46° 54,7’ N, 46° 50,9’ W, and rolling 30-40 degrees. The crew ate dinner, closed all the hatches and valves and prepared to leave the ship. The ship's Stork-Werkspoor engine type was deemed in the Finnish investigation report to be very sensitive to the quality of its lubrication oil owing to a design feature, and the type had also received a general design revision to the crank rod bearings and the connecting rods. The engine type was also known to collect sticky oily residue in the general crankshaft area even when carefully maintained. The engine on board the "Camilla" had both unrevised and revised parts installed, but the parts to fail were all of the unrevised design. The investigation board concluded that the most probable cause for the engine break down was imperfect lubrication of the main engine.[5] The imperfect lubrication was a result of several factors, as detailed in the full report.

  5. I was in the US Navy in 1942-1960 on two Cr-users USS Helena and USS Pittsburgh, and that was a great part of my life, There was an old superstition in those days—-NEVER ALLOW A WOMAN ON BOARD A SEA GOING SHIP ! And I still believe this !

  6. This was nothing compared to the man on raft for 76 days or man on in middle of sea with nothing at all or 2 boys on little boat or navy man who got sweap out in middle of sea these people atleast was on a huge floating ship with beds n food .
