Re: Look at this fantastic piece of engineering and enjoy...
Sorry if my "input" is a bit tardy, I've spent my weekend with a sanding block and a epoxy spreader.
Actually with an engine like this you have multiple redundancy:
I sailed on a ten-cylinder 900mm and a six-cylinder 900mm bore sulzer-engined ships.
If you have a problem with a cylinder, it can be disconnected at the crosshead and the ship can continue until either a port is reached or, if possible, the problem solved.
I saw this done once as a apprentice.
Missed my opinion? - No problem! - Someone elses will be along in a few minutes.
