The funny issues that come up when modelling the world
Here’s an odd one: our newly constructed model of the Lion’s Gate Bridge accurately represents the real-world clearance of 200 feet (61 metres), per the Engineering drawings. (See also this reference.) The published height of the Island Princess (cruise ship kindly provided by Mitsuya ‘Hama’ Hamaguchi) is 204 feet (62 metres). So how does the ship get to and from the Vancouver terminal? I’m guessing, like US Navy carriers, it can only transit First Narrows at low tide. So how do we represent this in the sim, which shows mean sea level? Right now the top of the superstructure collides with the bridge!
