We have amateur video to thank for memorializing the sight of ships at sea. After the Read More! are two videos. One of a USN destroyer doing evolutions at sea. And the other of a crab fishing boat of Iceland. I guess very few landsmen, accustomed as they are to puny little machines like cars and locomotives, can fully appreciate the power of a ship. Or the infinitely greater power of the sea.
What weighs more than a World War 2 heavy cruiser and is faster than speedboat?
Where do crabs come from?
And all I ask is a windy day
with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume,
and the sea-gulls crying.
