Modern turbine driven warships use a light diesel, quite like a heavy
kerosine as fuel, they burn it in a turbine quite like a jet engine. 
Luckily this will break up and weather off quite quickly, especially in
windy or high swell conditions.  Not ideal, but a lot better than
spilling bunker fuel oil, which is almost like tar.
