      Just to clear up a few 'misconceptions' about US carriers. The two main reasons the 'George Washington' is not able to come into the Inner Harbour are because it is nuclear powered and its draft.

      The length overall, beam of the hull and width of the flight deck of the 'George Washington', are almost the same (within 2 or 3 metres) as the conventionally powered carriers like the 'Constellation' & 'Kittyhawk', which regularly berthed at the Passenger Terminal.

      The big difference is the displacement tonnage, which means it has a deeper draft. Consequently, there is insufficient water under the hull to comply with strict USN regulations to do with the cooling water intakes for nuclear power plants.

      If the nuclear power 'ban' were to be revoked sometime in the future, it would be feasible for the nuclear carriers to berth. By then there should be sufficient Under Keel Clearance once the next major Inner Harbour dredging campaign (scheduled for the end of this year) is completed when the harbour depth will be down to 15 metres.

                      Yeah, it looks like it could do with a lick of paint ha ha. The pictures must be from an angle which makes it look like all those airplanes are on the deck as there'd be no room for them all downstairs!

                          funny as shit, i went on there, and saw where the sailors clock out/log out from the ship, and the table down there was FULL of condoms, i think millions of semen will be left behind in perth after the carrier has left

                            would just be surface rust...
                            “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                              Is that the brown stuff running out the side of the boat?
                              thought it was something else
