    now you see with your own eyes what a nice ship that one is ;)
    but i don't think you'll see it crossing a street bridge with 20 inch free space on each side will you? ;D

    Yes I remember the above photo when you initially posted it on the sea trials. Quite impressive! She has an insane number of tenders, 8 or so? what about the other toys, we do not know much about...So whilst in SMX, she just cruised around or she anchored and stayed?

    Re: Ocean Emerald... "Different" is not the word I would use. However that second photo profile of the expedition style with yellow masts, now that's a nice looking rig.

    Amazon Express

    Yes that's the one. Thanks for the name, Googled it. Wow... very impressive. I'm not a fan of the floating jellybean style megayacht. Too many are painfully similar/boring. You sure can't say that about Amazon Express.

    Not that it matters - especially a month or so later - but the plane pictured in post #7 is a 777, not a 767. The triple axle landing gear is the giveaway.

    Look again...that is a 767 with double axle gear. The perspective of the shot is at an angle.

    The plane is a 767, If you want to compare even the engine size you can do that. A 777 engines are bigger than a 767 and it is pretty well documented that the plane is a 767.

    In addition, 777s have a squared off tail-cone, the 767 has a normal curving and tapered tail cone as seen clearly in the #7 photo.

    If you want to compare again...

    Yeah, I'm wrong, it sure looked like a triple axle, but the comment about perspective is right.
