            First, they do not push, but lean with their hands to look overboard. Secondly, even vessels with a more serious displacement can be moved one person. True, to see this, you need clear weather and complete calm. It's just physics - you push the ship, friction against water is minimal, but the momentum does not disappear. Of course, the speed will be scanty, and you won’t see it right away.

          There is nothing unusual about this. This is normal and natural. They just started fenders and go along the side to the stern. No need to comment if you came across the sea only in the Crimea or in pictures. Normal marine practice is applied in all fleets of the World and displacement in this case does not play any role!

      Just a shame on the American Navy, even on the basis of what gets into the media, we can conclude that the steering and navigators are poorly trained. It is doubtful that in this state of affairs, the other crew members are better prepared.

    It’s time to somehow surprise the “world community”! To all the "world accomplices" ah ... zeros from the power of America ... For example, so that one American destroyer would ram another American destroyer. Or better, an aircraft carrier. Plus a submarine.

    Americans can’t walk on ships, Americans can only swim
