  Freedom Ship - the City at Sea
The Freedom Ship has little in common with a conventional ship; it is actually nothing more than a big barge.
The bolt-up construction and the unusually large amount of steel incorporated into the ship meets the design engineer's requirements for stability and structural integrity and the cost engineers requirements of "economic feasibility" but the downside is a severe reduction in top speed, making the ship useless for any existing requirements.
For example, it would be too slow to be a cruise ship or a cargo ship.

  FCC - Ship Radio Stations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Smaller ships used for recreation (e.g., sailing, diving, sport fishing fishing, water skiing) are not required to have radio stations installed but they may be so equipped by choice.
These ships are known as "voluntary ships" because they are not required by treaty or statute to carry a radio but voluntarily fit some of the same equipment used by compulsory ships.
Ships are considered as operating domestically when they do not travel to foreign ports or do not transmit radio communications to foreign stations.

In the view of Naval Architect, Shipping authority or Classification society, the coaming is one of the critical criteria for the damage stability.
A few ships have used nuclear reactors (like Arktika class icebreaker with 75,000 hp power), but this is not a separate form of propulsion; the reactor heats steam to drive the turbines.
It has become usual only in large aircraft carriers, where the space previously used for ship's bunkerage could then be used instead to bunker aviation fuel, and in submarines, where the ability to run submerged at high speed and in relative quiet for long periods holds obvious advantage.

 Batavia (ship) Encyclopedia Article @ HillCountryArts.com (Hill Country Arts)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Batavia was a ship of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), built in 1628 in Amsterdam, which was struck by mutiny and shipwreck during her maiden voyage, upon which a drama followed.
But on 4 June 1629, the ship struck a reef on Beacon Island off the Western Australian coast (28° 30' South, 113° 47' East), part of the Houtman Abrolhos (today the Wallabi reefs).
In contrast to the merchant ship Batavia, the new replica is a man-of-war, the Zeven Provinciën; Michiel de Ruyters' flagship.

At this point the narrative switches into the past, allowing the reader to witness the building of the ship through the voice of the ship's owner--and experience the heart-wrenching escalation of the owner's hopes and dreams.
In Ship, as in many of his earlier books, Macaulay tells more than one story and does so in more than one way.
Though the text and book are brief, the depth of the coverage is surprising--Macaulay plays with the relationships between time and color, words and illustrations, and he varies visual perspectives to offer a rich reading experience.
