I thought "A Whale" was the ship used for cleaning up the oil mess in the Gulf..

I thought 'a whale' was a massive great fish..  :-\


It was a throw away comment, not a lesson in marine biology... ;)

hehe trust me a Whale and Dolphins are mammals  if you observe their tail fins are horizontal, fishes are vertical.

Also fish have Gills, whales and Dolphins must surface and breath air...

a little bit off-topic but read this

Pieter Schelte is the name of a ship that will be built by the Swiss-Dutch offshore company Allseas. The ship is named after the father of Allseas-owner Edward Heerema, Pieter Heerema Schelte, officer of the Waffen-SS and a pioneer in offshore business. With a length of 382 m and 117 m wide vessel will be the largest in the world. Of this size is as large as two supertankers and area equivalent to eight football fields.

Pieter will Schelte large platforms of some 48,000 tonnes at a time from their base to inform and transport, instead of in small pieces as is customary. The vessel will also pipelines for oil and gas can be put to a depth of 3500 m, and with a record speed of over seven kilometers a day.

In 2012, the ship probably in use.

The prognosis for 2011, which Allseas mentioned earlier against the media, can be taken with a grain of salt. This is because since 2001 the ship in principle "for two years" in use will be taken. In November 2008 there was no agreement on a shipyard. The turnaround time for building a ship (and crane systems) of this size is at least 3 years. On October 24, 2008 Allseas was announced that construction delays caused by the credit crisis. In June 2010 Allseas has announced the order with Daewoo. It is a sum of 454.5 million on a total of 1.3 billion euros.
