Here's another photo of the Independence that I located, courtesy of Google Images, at its launching last year... Showing just how unusual the hullform is.

I never cease to marvel at ships on blocks. That is an amazing hull design.
Have to admit I'm tad surprised that they allowed a photo showing the hull. Thought it would be like submarine props which they keep hush hush.

Are they wings on the centreline keel or supports to hold her in place (I'm surprise at how she seem seems to be standing there.
