Maine Maritime Bridge Simulator Sharing
After a tour of the well equipped machine shop, Hugh Hoarder (who directed our tour and visit wonderfully) and Cam Brian led us to the State Of Maine's bridge. Within the bridge we spoke of the importance that every person plays aboard.
"No one is more important than the other," they repeated again and again.
We also engaged in a conversation of what the future of maritime ocean transportation and technology would look like. For example, learning more of LNG so we can use it to its highest and safest potential. Finally, Hugh and Cam shared facts about the ship and its cruises, including past experiences where technology has failed and manual controls saved the day. We were very lucky to get this mini lesson and get the insight into the State of Maine that our visit provided.
