dang! I know the Queen Mary original parked in Long Beach. This one seems a bigger beast---a veritable floating hotel.

Finn - yep this is one big boat! This is her regular berth in Southampton and here I'm viewing it from Hythe Marina to the South West across 1 mile of water.

Always amazes me to see these 'buildings' in the water. I find it kind of terrifying.

Great shot. The other vessels give perspective and a crowded feeling.

Ruk - someone tried to explain the principles of how tons of metal can float, something to do with displacement but I got lost!


R&E - you'd never think there was a mile between them would you? They turn those huge vessels as neatly as dinghys too, amazing control.
