In any drydock I've ever been in, the clearance below the bottom of the hull would be far too short to drop much of anything out. Those original boilers are tall -- they reach from the bottom of the...

Carmen, my thinking is that even if Krupp had something to do with the forged parts of the DK/DQ, the pitmans would not have been included, as they are made of wood. They do have steel straps on...

Dale, I remember the first time I ever stepped aboard the DQ, I *think* about 1967. My mother was (as was Betty Blake) quite disappointed in the public areas -- pictures we've seen here and on FB...

It does happen on this site sometimes, Dale. Franz is aware of it but they can't figure out why. You can go to "Display modes" and choose the Linear mode to see others who have posted.
