    Would agree with you there, all welds on a ships hull are xrayed to ensure there are no defects. Ships will generally only break their backs as a result of grounding, collision or freak waves. The freak waves do happen one nearly 100 meters high hit one of the cunard queens head on it took the deck plates down by 3 mm.

    Edit: sorry 95 foot wave

    "One prime reason for the catastrophic ship structural failures is first and foremost, lack of ship yard front office weld process ownership. "
    This "weld process ownership" seems to come up quite a bit on this site but I've yet to figure out what exactly this is, other than a meaningless corporate buzz phrase,

    Main reason for ship failure is human/pilot error.

    second reason is ship being operated outside it’s lifespan or operating parameters.

    Third reason is probably a flaw in the ships structure.

    welding or material failure very low down the list

    I vote for meaningless corporate buzz phrase invented by those elusive creatures responsible mangers @TechnicAl quoted.

    My dear old Dad used to say - It's like a cow pat. Don't prod it and it won't smell. I thought feeding, quoting or even acknowledging the existence of Trolls wasn't the done thing?

    Edit: or is this the Forum's modern equivalent of visiting Bedlam to mock the inmates?

    There is no “corporation” behind it. It’s Ed Craig, then Em Craig and now E Craig (based on his LinkedIn profile). One man operation by the looks of it.
