Just looks at this folks. I realise I'm pissing into the wind, but I'll try yet again to state the obvious: THIS IS WHAT SHIPBUCKET IS ABOUT - comprendi?

No proposterous mega battleships,or AU's, just a very decent drawing that adds to our reputation as a serious forum.

I don't know if this counts, so:

Artillery lighter Falke, part of the Euphrat River Flotilla during WW1. A lighter with a mounted 105mm gun taken from the cruiser Breslau, she supported the German/Turkish troops along the Euphrat. After ammunition was used up, she was scuttled.

Crazy but fantastic. If anyone had ever dreamt up such a ship for an AU they would have been laughed off the board. As ever, truth is stranger than fiction!

That's a pretty... odd design. But very interesting. :)

Lenght 10m, beam 3m, draught 0,5m, if that is any indication for stability :? . It's clear that this is a wartime improvisation and most likely would have never happened in peacetime. That said, information about that is very scarce without any mention of stability issues...

In the meantime: Racing yacht Meteor of 1909, fourth ship in a series of five racing yachts of the same name.
