Toronto Globe and Mail..."In a surprise move RCL has announced a new build for Celebrity Cruises, to be completed in 2006. This new ship promises to be the largest to date in this upscale, mass market arm of RCL. The designers have promised no thruster vibration, no engine noise, no body roll, and very low emmissions.

Upon completion of the hull the entire ship will be taken to Fort Lauderdale where it will continue to outfitted. The final construction phase will be to encase the entire lower third of the hull in concrete to make it completely immobile for it's entire existance.

This is being done to satisfy those who want a cruise ship to be as stable as a hotel..."

You heard it here first ;-) !!

If memory serves correctly, there is still a concrete ship beached at Aptos CA.

Apparently, there were some experiments during WW2 using cement rather than steel for hulls. Although the wieght is different, the displacement theories should still hold.

Actually, quite a lot of homebuilt concrete ships were made some years back. Displacement still works, and remember, steel doesn't float, either ;)

During the Battle of the Atlantic, one idea was to build "floating air fields" about three times the size of the largest air craft carrier, the material was a combination of ice and some kind of chemical. Apparently the chemical prevented the ice from melting . The plans were drawn up for and proposed by Lord Montbatten.

I am suprised you didn't throw this into the mix Danno
