Well, there is also a member having "Multiplayer Admins" as position. I supposed it was some additional monitoring of the team?

Ah, no, multiplayer admins can ban users from the multiplayer. We've got 6 of those actually, but the others are hidden. So what is your question?

A wild guess Luc, I'd say about 20 meters..

Lets me participate too.

Whats the maximum speed reached by the fishing boat during the storn at the open sea with 4.0m waves?
In this question the boat is facing the waves from the bow, not surfing like following the waves.

Pfff, the closest answer is that of an aussie....  although still far off. That is the depth at HW, did anyone see a loaded supertanker in Portsmouth??
Google could have given the solution, as well as any chart of course, it is maintained by dredging at 9.50m.
So, as nobody found the answer, a new question, very easy:

Where are waterdepths greater than 40m in NY harbor?

The word I had in mind was in fact an adverb...

I don’t think you had in mind the water tunnels beneath the city that bring fresh water from up north. They are very deep.

Not at all, I thought about the tunnels too, but no, although there is no trick, there is a trap indeed.
Luc
It can be related to the fact that the depths in SS2008 are feet...

Nowhere
is the answer. Wasn't it easy? 
One word, an adverb, depths in NY are given in feet by SS2008.
No luck, but OK, to someone else, I give up with my not well adapted questions.
Go on, saltydog, your tenacity has as much merit as finding the answer.
To you, mister salted chips, you won

From the inside, I think 3 + 5 + 2 is around 10 :-\  ???
Also a tricky question?

Well I counted 10 flights of stairs so 150 stairs but is there a trick? Doesn't one say "ladder" for a ship?
If my last question is right, so I would say there is no flight of stairs.

10 flights of stairs is correct..So Luc, you're up (unless you want to give this one to budbud.. ;)
I may have been wrong calling them stairs, but hey, I'm a landlubber.. ;)
