Queen Mary 2 pics
« on: March 16, 2014, 04:39:35 PM »

Hello
Something strange on this picture ?

Or perhaps on that one ?

Maybe the man standing on the hull bulbous bow ?

Nice place to be ! And the man is the captain of  QM2. The pictures was taken by James Morgan at anchor in Bali.

Actually they scraped off the marine growth so he wouldn't slip off! Very nice man Captain Oprey, he signed and dedicated a book on QM2 that we bought while aboard a couple of years back when celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.

And here is the video!

Awesome ship, despite the exterior looks.

If the Mate had any ambitions for promotion, he could have given the throttles a wee nudge........

....and if that's not the Skipper but the Chief Steward, everybody would want to give the throttles a nudge.  O0
