If you haven't heard of Aquarius, please check out this website. My 'boss', and friend,  Her Deepness, Sylvia Earle is spending some time trying to help save it.  Funding cuts suck, especially when put into perspective.

Excellent!  I followed your link to PM&I and then Googled "Stern Tube" which took me to http://www.marineinsight.com/tech/auxiliary-machinery/understanding-stern-tube-arrangement-on-ships/ which has some great detail on how this whole thing works.  Fascinating.  I always wondered how that worked.  Thank you very much!
