Those ships look small George, you otter see some of the cruise ships coming and going thru puget sound! I seem to recall the largest ship on the see is one of the newest cruise ships! These things are monsters compared to the 2-3 carriers the make PS home! Or for that matter, even the container ships that come to Seattle or farther south to Tacoma!

Was not following the other thread, but, yes these big guys can move quickly, silently too! I remember one of them turning in front of me to enter Elliot Bay towards seattle, man that puppy was quick! As are the Cruise ships when you see them south of me in seattle coming out of the bay, 15-30 min max, they are here! 5' swells and all!
