On the Cover

The Polar Endeavour from Litton Avondale was selected as a Great Ship of 2001, and is featured on page 33 of this edition.

The 141,740-dwt Polar Endeavour is signifi- cant in many respects, as it is built to oper- ate effectively and efficiently for more than 25 years between Alaska and Puget Sound,

Washington — two of the more environmen- tally sensitive areas in the world.

Classed by the American Bureau of

Shipping, the 894-ft. (272.6 m) double hull tanker is the model of safety through redun- dancy. Spacing between its two hulls is 10 ft., or 50 percent greater than the mandatory minimum.

Two MAN B&W diesel engines — each with a nominal output of 15,015 bhp — drive the vessel, from separate and protected engine- rooms, to a speed of 16.55 knots
