Ore Haulers by J-Humphries Ore Haulers by J-Humphries
Two Harbors MN, 2086. Designed to hover over water rather than float in it, this ship hovers about 100 meters over the surface of the water, rendering it impervious to Lake Superior's vicious storms. Intended to haul iron ore, its heavy duty construction would also make a great mobile base for a villain. Boss fight anyone?

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-11-11
Ore Haulers by ~Vonmurder

Suggester Comments: "Ore Haulers" is well-composed and makes excellent use of lighting. It evokes nostalgia in people who have visited major shipping ports, and is also reminiscent of strong works of speculative fiction that explore changes to industry through advances in technology." ( Suggested by Ofidian and Featured by alltheoriginalnames )

More like 'ore haulers. Guess they have to be that big to carry your mom.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. Great piece.

Amazing art and world-building! Though I'm curious as to whether or not Split Rock Lighthouse is still around as a reminder of when ships sailed in the water.

How does that make it immune to storms which are atmospheric in origin? Winds, rains, lightning?

Actually, it may not get hit by waves, but it would still have to contend with gale or hurricane-force winds, as well as lightning strikes and/or hail damage.

A submarine would be better. 100, 150 feet below the surface, the water is unaffected by even the worst storm. A ship would have very smooth sailing underwater.
