Ship graveyards

April 26, 2013

Ships and boats - the oldest invention. From antiquity to modern times, the great powers sought to have good access to the seas and oceans. This greatly facilitated trade relations. But the growth in air travel and the decline in mass shipbuilding have turned the shores, lonely bays and shipyards into ghosts of the former greatness of sea-going ships. Now, such places are a good topic for an article.

Although ships are often dismantled for scrap, many remain to rust in lonely bays, shallows and shipyards. Meanwhile, the rust from ships pollutes the water and becomes a clear sign of the country's rotting industrial era. (Below is the birth, life and death of the twin brother of the "Titanic" of the cruise liner "Britanic").

A big liner, like the Titanic or Britanic, and especially their death is romanticized by Hollywood, but the life and death of the merchant and military courts is not that romantic. Parts of ships covered with rust, stand in the docks and quiet bays. Some are half submerged, some still hold.

Carriers and battleships are among the most impressive ships, but their life is not eternal.For example, the Soviet cruiser Murmansk, went down in 1994 while being towed for scrapping to India, and the German cruiser Hindenburg, was deliberately submerged in Scapa Flow, off the Orkney Islands. Carriers, in size, can be compared only with sea tankers, and that is why their death does not go unnoticed by the public. The French for example did not give up their aircraft carrier for scrapping in India

But the aircraft carrier Oriskany successfully flooded near Australia ... Now this place is considered the best place for diving.

Of course, Oriskani was thoroughly cleaned before diving, to protect against future environmental problems. But when the New Flame cargo ship collided with a tanker in the Strait of Gibraltar, the first task was to save the ecosystem. Unfortunately, at some point the ship broke in half.

Ship's cemeteries today are much less than 10 years ago. All because of the tightening of environmental regulations. The ship's graveyard on Staten Island is currently the most popular and most visited place among its peers. This is how a ship graveyard can be turned into a Disneyland for adult boys.

And finally, a little of the Aral Sea, which is no longer there, and the ships turned into real ships of the desert.
