Naval Architect Naval architecture also known as Naval engineering is an engineering discipline dealing with the design, construction, maintenance and operation of marine vessels and structures.[1][2] Naval architecture involves basic and applied research, design, development, design evaluation and calculations during all stages of the life of a marine vehicle. Preliminary design of the vessel, its detailed design, construction, trials, operation and maintenance, launching and dry-docking are the main activities involved. Ship design calculations are also required for ships being modified (by means of conversion, rebuilding, modernization, or repair).

Tripadvisaargh When asked for toilet, very begrudgingly shown it. Not recommended, unless it is raining and you are really really bored… shellgrotto, Owner at The Shell Grotto, responded to this review This lady is a contestant on Come Dine With Me, who filmed here at the Grotto last week.

Stagecoach will test the potential for a new link between Kirkcaldy in Fife and Portobello, Edinburgh, using a hovercraft capable of connecting them in 20 minutes. Passengers will pay 4.50 return for the hourly, daytime service, which is seen as potentially relieving some congestion on the Forth Road Bridge. The 300,000 trial, which runs from 16 July to 28 July, coincides with a week-long closure of the Forth Bridge for railway engineering work. Brian Souter, the Stagecoach chief executive, hit upon the hovercraft plan after being frustrated by the "painfully slow" progress of his original Forth ferry plans, which The Scotsman revealed three years ago.
