The guided-missile cruiser U.S.S. Fox was a Belknap class vessel, designed by Gibbs &
Cox. Without the requirements for stealth characteristics demanded in modern vessels,
the
Belknaps possessed a beauty of line and form belonging to an earlier generation of
ships.

the short video clip showing the flexing of a container ship in rough seas. After seeing
tons of steel bend and flex like a diving board, you'll realize that someone is grateful for
that naval architect who knew what he or she was doing with that design.
