Finding the correct port at which to dock is no longer difficult, and it has been the case for all the industrialized years that have passed. And no longer is it the case that only the world’s largest (record-breaking sized) tankers, and cargo liners, and luxury sea cruisers, are traveling the seven seas for thousands of miles. Those with the adventurous spirit and a die-hard lust, but uttermost respect, for the sea, are now able to travel from one port, say lining the Pacific Ocean, to another, in nothing more than a tarpaulin-sailed yacht. But it has to be said that none of this ocean-faring bravado would have been possible if it had not been for modern communications and engineering technologies, as well as marine brand attwood replacement parts which, for lack of a better word to express it, can be shipped pretty much from any port in the world these days.
Yes, an interesting way of putting it.
Because here you are in one port of the world. Your ship has not run aground but it is docked in port simply because it needs its replacement parts without any further ado. Thanks to engineering prowess, the marine engineer knows what to do next. He orders the replacement parts. But for some reason or another, these parts that are unique to the boat in question need to be shipped from the Far East, of all the places in the world. But that being said; the order is made, the parts are packaged, they are distributed. And then they are shipped to your port. Only the thing is they are shipped by plane.
How odd, you would have thought. Nevertheless, this works and no longer does a ship’s captain have to wait weeks for his parts to arrive.
