  8. Looking again at that merch rapidly approaching the tug, the bloke on the right looks like he's preparing to throw a heaving line up to the blokes on the foc's'le. What do reckon the chances are he made it first time :)
  9. D'know that is so spooky you being on her.
    I never was, how much of a coincidence is that.
    Do you think our lives may be paralleled?

    Actually wrecks, looking at the deck , it does look like they are about to take it under tow. I don't fancy that blokes chances with the heaving line yet can't see how else they intend getting a pilot line across. Unless there is a RAS style rifle launched gizmo out of picture. Wouldn't fancy trying to take lines across in a seaboat either in that sea state.

    Edited to add: I think I'd be sh*%$ing myself when I realised it was an LPG container.

    The expression you seek is 'protect your stern'. However , gayness is not the preserve of civilian mariners so don't cast too many stones........ you good looking young fellow with the firm buttocks.
