It often strikes me that the top of the Hilton Hotel in Belfast looks very like a ship.
Slightly further across the city, an enormous cruise ship backed into its berth on Monday morning. Unfortunately low level clouds arrived soon after, giving the passengers a traditional wet welcome to Northern Ireland as they boarded their buses to go off and tour the sights.
It's an enormous vessel, with level after level extending above water level. Which makes me wonder what kind of hull and/or keel it was in order to keep its centre of gravity/centre of buoyancy in a sensible position?
