Default 20 Estonian Men move cruise ship

Setting a record

Monday, 23 May 2011 13:52




Twenty Estonian men yoked to the Tallink's cruise ship Baltic Queen move the 20.000-ton cruise ship, to set a new record, during the Tallinn's Maritime Days in Tallinn on May 20, 2011. The event was organised as one of the key events on Tallinn's Maritime Days by Tallink company.

The Baltic Queen is one of the Baltic Sea's largest cruise ships, with a length of 212 meters, beam of 29 meters and weight of close to 20,000 tons. In 2010 the Estonian men hauled a 200-ton train and in 2009, one of the muscle men, Andrus Murumets, single-handedly pushed a 40-ton Estonian Air Boeing 737-500.

That's one way to save on fuel.

It doesn't say how far they actually moved it. Then again, getting it started is the hardest.

Take care,
Mike
