What is the longest running ferry boat or ship in maritime history?

The MV Commander is the longest continual service ferry boat in current operation. Im unsure if it is the longest all time though.

I can't say if its the longest in history, but the SS St. Mary's Challenger has been in service for over 100 years (mostly as a cement carrier). And since ships tend to last much longer on the Great Lakes because of the fresh water, I'd think she could possibly be the longest serving overall. More info can be found on the boatnerd website boatnerd.com

The oldest licensed passenger crossing runs across the Thames in England from the town of Hampton to Molesey Hurst. The earliest known record of ferry operation here was in 1514 making it about 500 years old. The Hampton Ferry has not used the same boat for this length of time though so it is not the oldest ferry boat, yet it does remain the oldest licensed crossing...still an impressive feat for such a humble ferry.

How are ships made?

Modern shipbuilding practice is to build ships in several subassemblies, called blocks. The blocks are constructed from the ground up, and loaded with as much outfitting (piping, electrical wiring, equipment) as possible. The blocks are built on the ground, and then erected onto the ship. The size of the blocks depends on the shipyards lifting capacity. The larger the blocks, the more efficient the build cycle is. Once all the blocks are erected onto the ship, the ship is then launched into the water where final production work is done, and the ship is tested. An incline test is performed to test the stability of the vessel. Before delivery of the vessel to the customer, the building yard will conduct a sea trials.

What ship made a run for it?

During the attack on Pearl Harbor the U.S.S Nevada tried to make a run for it but they were damaged and too close to the harbor entrance to make it without blocking all passage in or out of the harbor. They chose to ground near the hospital to keep the harbor entrance open and have a chance to save the ship.

How old do you have to be to drive a boat in the state of Florida?

if you are under 21 then you need to pass a boaters education test. Boats US do a free one on their website. Type in to Google Boats US online course and its the first one. Once you have done that send it tow FWC. Their address is on the Boats US website aswell. Then you'll get sent your boaters id card and as long as you have that on you aswell as a photo id aswell you'll be ok.

But this is only by yourself. An under 21 doesn't need one if someone is on the boat over 21 or between 18 and 21 with a safety card.

If the boat is less than 10 hp you need nothing.

Any more info on Boats US or FWC website.

How do you replace the floor shifter for a longer one on a 2003 S-10 standard?

You can check with your dealer, but I don't think you will find one new. If I needed to extend the shifter, I would go to a salvage yard and find one of the proper length then have the stick welded onto the base of your stick; with a professional job no one would know it was done.This would not be that hard to do vs changing the shifter mechanism itself. I hope this helps you. Mark
