Dwayne - The Azipods have posed problems but I thought they were pretty well worked out by now! They do add considerable manueverability to a ship - the larger the vessel the more help it can use in docking!! On board - I know I sense the roation of the shaft more so than the azipod!
Thank You for the congrats- I guess I can do sort of a dance of sorts - probably more of a hop (Hey-what other kind of a dance does a guru do!!) (Just call me Kang the Guru!)
But there is still a long way to go to catch up with you and the rest of our gang!
