Ok thanks Luc.
Now here is the question:
What is the name and the company of the blue and white ferry which is in some scene, in particular in Marseille at La Joliette?

The name of the ship doesn't point to Marseille, but Mexico or Viet-Nâm...
The logo of SNCM is a circle, a white bow on a blue background.
"S" would be the italian Cy Saremar?

Well, you make a semi point for the name, it has something to do with Mexico (the country) but, unfortunately you're wrong for the company name.

Well done! You get it!  :D
It was the Coromuel of the company Sematur.
For info this ferry was renamed Sinaloa Star in 1989.
Ok It's your turn again.

Once more, you win.
Ask a really hard question, so that only very smart people can answer it.
Something like "On which ship is Latitude based?"
or, "Is Latitude a VLCC or ULCC ?"
or, "Is it Titanic that hit the iceberg, ot the berg that hit her? Explain why"
or "Why was Capt'n Smith asleep when his ship was in the middle of the ocean?"

A simple question is also ok, so that more people can respond.. ;)

More efficient compared with what? With a dropped (and lost  ;D) anchor? With a U-turn?  ???

Ok sorry I precise a little:

In high seas, too much depth to drop anchor.
To stop a VLCC in the shortest distance.

Hello,
Budbud meant "most" instead of "more", --> probably a turning manoeuver, reducing revolutions and then stopping when at 90° of the initial heading, ie TMTM (The Murdoch's Tentative Manoeuvre).
Let us fight the problem: Why an emergency stop? Black-out? Collision danger and give way? Go and get Capt Smith!
 :o
Luc
Edit: Sorry, it was perhaps "Tentative Murdoch's Titanic Manoeuvre"

oups sorry for the mistake, it was "most" the right word!
Well you get the point again Luc.
You're right. A crash stop is very much longer to stop a VLCC than a full turn then stop.
It's your turn.

No, quite seriously now!  ;D
No, I was only  :o guessing, the best way to lose speed is "turn, reduce and stop", not "stop and hardover". It is not specific to VLCCs? The angle of attack increases the drag, like escort tugs do in indirect towing (still fresh  ::) in my memory), playing the role of a floating, drag anchor.
As a new question, but needing explanations in the answer, because  ??? I have no idea:
Does Surströmming taste better than Marm*te?

I have no idea what Surströmming is, but I have a feeling it's disgusting.. :D
I just checked, it's fermented herring, a delicacy in Sweden..Oh well, tastes differ I guess.. :)

Ok, the question..
On the south-west coast of the island of Ko PhiPhi Don, there is a very small inlet..
What is the exact depth of the water (in metres) at the end of that inlet?
(You'd be surprised..., I was.. :) )

Yes, The Big Blue
But how deep? Let us give to someone else a chance to have a look at it, and find how deep it is and ... win. I think having been there already, in the mission "Early Arrival at Phi Phi"? But I surely didn't look at the depth, I would have been scared.
