...and they get crew to sail on it. I wonder what comments they attract from other ships?  :kiss:  %)

I think it looks superb :-))

Would you rather be on a cruise ship painted like that or one that is jet black with a shark's mouth painted on the front...

Neither - I like my ships to look like ships.

I saw her in St Petersburg last year, she was berthed next to us. If you think that is way out then have a look at Moby Lines on this page:http://www.simplonpc.co.uk/MobyPCs2.html

I'd rather be on the jet black one. It may deter pirate attacks anyway, right?

When I am inboard I cannot see the paintwork, so as long as the scenery is good to look at who cares, I think Shipmate60 knows what I mean!

I wonder if Moby Line ever gets attacked by hungry Japanese whale hunters??

What about the bow visor on this Swiss ferry ..................   {-) {-) {-)
Personally, I think that is absolutely wonderful. Lots of imagination, and certainly an eye-catcher! Better than the ones shown on this thread. BY.
