ICEBERG

By January 16, 2020blog

Hello folks!

Well today is Thursday and as many of you know we love a good “Throwback Thursday” we have done countless beautiful yacht/boat names over the years we have SO many great jobs we want to share with you and soon we will be it will be  “Throwback Thursday” everyday on this site haha!

Anyways today we are sharing a beautiful lighted yacht sign we did back in 2016 on a gorgeous 45′ Pursuit Yacht her name is “ICEBERG” kinda funny how we are located in sunny South Florida! But as marine folks can be, very funny! We love our jokes and puns!

Here is a little fun fact about icebergs we looked up online!

An iceberg is a large piece of fresh water ice that has broken off a glacier or an ice shelf and is floating freely in open salt water. Small bits of disintegrating icebergs are called “growlers” or “bergy bits” (first time we heard that! Good to know!) 

Much of an iceberg is below the surface which led to the expression “tip of the iceberg” to illustrate a small part of a larger unseen issue. Icebergs are considered a serious marine hazards! Lets not forget the movie Titanic! Yikes.

The actual word “iceberg” is translated from Dutch meaning ice mountain. Also icebergs can be compared in size of Manhattan, yes they can be that big.

An iceberg will flip in the water as it melts and breaks apart because gravity continually pulls the heavier side downward. Most flipping occurs when the iceberg is young and establishing balance. Flipping can occur anytime and without warning. Large icebergs that flip can give off as much energy as an atomic bomb and produce earthquakes – another OH MY in our mind while reading this!

Ok well now that we got the fun facts out of the way – please enjoy this light yacht sign we did below….ICEBERG!

Hope you enjoy folks, until next time!
