Berry Randall Yes, the launch captain and first mate are always aboard when a new ship is launched. At launch there is a tug boat or two Hooked to them to pull to main water. The captain and first mate and some times a hand or two are on board to make sure there are no major leaks in the hull. (Worked as a ship fitter for 6 months in the golf that's how I know)
Shannen Petri Yeah man, the way these vessels are tipping is what some of them face regularly in the deep blue. Wouldn't keep anyone off it!If seas really get that rough, then this is like Star Trek, why don't you see any seat belts on the bridge?
