would that not be too easy to lift from the net? + I never kept my own portfolio. The ship carrying them is a Dockwise ship. It's semi submersible, also used for drilling rigs etc. Other carriers for yachts etc are Sevenstar and YachtPath, although these can't cope with ships, and are not submersible. I worked for Peters and May, Complete Marine Freight and a couple of lesser known forwarders specialising in yacht and powerboat shipping.

The carrying ship will sink itself using ballast tanks, so the base layer can float itself on. I have never loaded so many onto 1 ship, stacked like that, but they are flat bottomed barges, so simple to stack. Heavy lift cranes should move them off.
