Interesting juxtaposition this morning of Stad Amsterdam and the world's most expensive charter boat Flying Fox at $4 million per week.
Yes the helicopter ain't a small one.
136 meters/442 feet compared to 66.5m /218 feet.

One of the things I love about this part of the Caribbean is you never know who, or what(!!) is going to drop the pick in your bay.

Cool... Brought to mind this group of photos I took while coming down the St. Lawrence in 2017. There was a parade of tall ships to celebrate Canada's 150 anniversary, so I got a front-row seat to the show as they sailed by. Not nearly as impressive, or as good as yours Mark, but contrasts.

They all look amazing. I like the second one down. It looks tiny. Might be parallax error but it looks far to small for the sea. Courageous men in those days.

It's a deeply zoomed image, with the modern sloop in the foreground and the tall ship behind. It was a big sloop, and a small tall ship, but I think the huge apparent difference is an optical illusion.

Picture from 1975, Holland Michigan, the HMS Dolphin, owned by Hollis Baker, a furniture company owner. He had it custom built for himself, including working cannons which they fired on weekends. Sadly, I have no idea what became of her, and few pictures are available even on the web...but here's mine anyways.
