Interesting pic Messervy. I was about to reply and claim that the scale of the pic is wrong and that it must be a case of photo editing. After all, no ship could be that big.

However, I saved myself from looking like an idiot by looking into it before responding and found this:

If I am reading this correctly, this ship registers at 553,662 tons. I wonder why it was only in service for two years?

You wonder becuse you have missread the data.
It was built in 1976. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

And yes I got that picture from that exact page when I was looking for pictures of Jahre Viking - the biggest ship ever built.

You are right, the build date is 1976. I was looking below that at the 'history' listing which shows dates from '83 to '85. However, looking further, I see that these are dates that the boat was laid up before being scrapped. So, I guess that the service dates were from sometime after '76 until '83, after which it was laid up and then scrapped. That gives a service life of about 17 years...That makes a lot more sense to me. Thanks for pointing that out.

What a huge ship!!!
