Lizzie, apply a spot of thought before typing ;)

A container ship is highly unlikely to be doing 20 knots in such conditions... 5-10 more likely...

And read my post properly before criticising! ::) ::)

I stated a ship could be doing up to 20 knots in calm conditions, and implied in "rough, gale force condition with the ship pitching on storm tossed seas" the ship could be affected by a aft wind pushing a very high sided ship forward at speeds of up to 20 knots.. :)

But, in any case with container ships, as with all freight vessels, time is money, I would suggest that perhaps some captains will keep their ships, which are huge, travelling at near to a very steady speed.  If ever you have watched large container ships out in the English Channel as I have from the shore, even in heavy seas they maintain forward movement at a tidy pace.

SORRY DG!  Reading my piece again I can understand why you read it as you did. :-[ :-[

Got wet replacing the faulty drivers door locking solenoid,for a good replacement.

Then spent 3 hours drying out whilst the contact adhesive set on the plastic section of the door card that seems to want to fall off when ever card is removed.It wont this time as has self tappers and a very large helping of araldite to hold it.

Now waiting for rain to ease up then I can refit door card.....good news is locking system works without faults now  :y

I don't think I've taken one off that doesn't have this problem. Self tappers and a strong glue is certainly the way to go.  :y :y :y

 In the great days of the British Empire, a new commanding officer was sent to an African jungle outpost to relieve the retiring colonel.
 
After welcoming his replacement and showing the usual courtesies (gin and tonic, cucumber sandwiches etc) which protocol decrees, the retiring colonel said,
"You must meet my Adjutant, Captain Smithers, He's my right-hand man and is really the strength of this office. His talent is simply boundless."
Smithers was summoned and introduced to the new CO, who was surprised to meet a hunchback, one eyed, toothless, hairless, scabby and pockmarked specimen of humanity, a particularly unattractive man less than three feet tall.
"Smithers, old man, tell your new CO about yourself."
''Well, Sir, Smithers replied, I graduated with honours from Sandhurst, joined the regiment and won the Military Cross and Bar after three expeditions behind enemy lines. I've represented Great Britain in equestrian events and won a Silver Medal in the boxing middleweight division of the Olympics. I have researched the history of........................."
At which point the Colonel interrupted,
"Yes, yes, never mind that Smithers, he can find all that in your file. Tell him about the day you told the local witch doctor to f*&k off."

OK, new equation is:

AreaT2 equals 2(3.142x241) - 2(3.142x101.5)

New VolumeT2 equals AreaT 2 x 51.

The difference is obviously VolumeT - VolumeT2 :y
