re: US destroyer and Japanese tug collide - volnavy
The only design on a tugboat to "not cause damage" is the bumpers they have over the side. Some have permanent ones and some have the kind that are tied and thrown over the side when they are needed. Without the bumpers you have metal on metal. ...

re: US destroyer and Japanese tug collide - volnavy
Yep, thats all on the Port Engineers. I wonder why the tug was going at a good enough speed to cause damage if it was supposedly dead sticked. And did it not have bumpers over the side? Lots of info not being stated in the article. Was this the tug for the Benfold?...

re: Crackpot ASOIAF Theories SPOILERS - volnavy
