I’ve recently come across an interesting interactive site about the TITANIC,

where you can read about the birth of this famous passenger ship, the disaster, the impact the collision with the iceberg had on the ship or what it meant to be on board of it and finally about the rescue. I therefore started thinking about ships and what the word stays or stood for. “I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.”

Feight Ship



There are, for example cargo ships or freighters (Frachtschiffe/navi da carico). Any sort of ship or vessel that carries cargo,goods, and materials from one port to another are called so. Thousands of cargo carriers ply (verkehren auf/ci sono su) the world’s seas and oceans each year; they handle the bulk (Grossteil/la maggior parte) of internationaltrade. Cargo ships are usually specially designed for the task, often being equipped with cranes and other mechanisms to load and unload, and come in all sizes.

Today, they are almost always built of welded (geschweisst/saldato) steel, and with some exception, generally have a life expectancy of 25 to 30 years before being scrapped. (bevor sie verschrottet werden/prima che vengono disfatti) When we were in Hamburg we were very impressed, not only positively, by this enormous container ships which are unloaded completely automatically. This means that no workers are employed to do this job! The biggest cargo ship we saw carried about 10’000 containers. SLAVE SHIPS (Sklavenschiffe/navi per schiavi) which were just converted cargo ships belong, of course, also in this category. Newly purchased slaves were transported from Africa to America.

This is the link to my article about FISH EXTINCTION which is certainly in connection with ships!!

In the museum of the Vikings in Roshilde/Denmark

Viking ships were vessels used during the Viking Age in Northern Europe. Scandinavian tradition of shipbuilding during the Viking Age was characterized by slender (schmal/snello) and flexible boats, with symmetrical ends with true keel (Kiel/carena) . They were clinker built, which is the overlapping

(überlappen/sorvrapporre) of planks riveted together. They might have had a dragon’s head or other circular object protruding from the bow and stern,(von Bug und Heck/da prua a poppa) for design, although this is only inferred from historical sources. We have taken this picture in the beautiful Viking museum in Roskilde, Denmark. I also add the link to my articlein German which also hints at it.

Beware of the little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.

Cape Point is probably the most spectacular point of the whole African coast. It was of great navigational value for early seafarers by day, but at night, it seems, with its hidden (versteckten/nascoste) underwater reefs, it was extremely dangerous. The first lighthouse keepers realized that when the mists (Nebel/nebbia) swept in from the sea, its beam (Leitstrahl/raggio vettore) was to high and was invisible to any ships at sea. In April 1911, in rain and mist a Portuguese liner, the LUSITANIA, struck Bellows Rock, about three miles off Cape Point. This disaster prompted the resisting of the Cape Point lighthouse at a lower level.
