For anyone who likes to sail fast, light boats in the Pacific Northwest, here’s a frightening look at one way logs are unloaded off specialized ships near Vancouver Island.

In more fear-inducing news, a Maersk ship yesterday revised estimates of how many empty containers it lost in one of the nasty storms in Biscay this winter, and the 520 boxes of boat-eating metal almost equals the total number of containers lost annually off of ships in the North Atlantic.  How many will still be afloat when the singlehanded Route Du Rhum sets off in November?  How many yachts, pleasure boats, and fishing boats need to be holed before these shippers are required to track and recover these ticking time bombs?

Never mind the problems with it (and they are myriad), how cool would it be if the Ro-Ro of the future looked like this? Norwegian engineer Terje Lade says his Wind Ship (did he mean “Wing Ship”?) could be an economic reality sooner than you think; 3 or 4 years until the first one splashes.  ”It will give you a positive pull in the direction of the ship more than fifty percent of the time, as an average, without doing anything,” he said. “You don’t have to think about it. It’s so simple.”

Simple until the first storm, apparently.  Discuss here.  There’s even some video.
