Default I hope the drawings were accurate....

I have seen ships which have been Jumbo-ized and Dejumbo-ized, but they were all cargo or tank vessels, A project on this scale is impressive

That's downright astonishing!

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Doug , that’s an insane undertaking all things considered. I have this weird feeling the structural integrity just isn’t there ,and that puppy is going to break in half on rough seas .
But when you think about it , the steel haul was thousands of panels welded together regardless.
The wiring and plumbing itself is going to be a nightmare lol .

Doug , have you ever considered retiring from tankers and operating a cruise ship instead?
There might be to much eye candy there though

in the grand scheme of thing 49 feet doesn't seem like a lot additional footage...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

It is not the first time it has been done on cruise ships, no matter what they claim. I first read about it some years back.

First done in 1871.

Stretched Limo no Stretched liner- that's amazing Doug.I first thought about how strong the hull would be with the resection & then I remembered all the decks in between would also be welded. She'd be strong alright.

There was no mention of why they undertook the project. On top of the reno costs there's the lost revenue over those years out of service.
I'd have thought selling it off and building a new one from scratch would have made more sense. They could have kept it in service (making money!) till the new one was operational.

That is definitely a cool mod! I wonder if there were any 'oops' moments?
