Well, form may well follow function with it's design, but it is still about the ugliest looking boat out there I think. Did Steve Jobs ever get to enjoy it at all, anyone know..?

I believe he passed away before it was finished.

And personally I like its design.

Capt Bill, I just knew you'd say that...guess there's no accounting for taste. Although I can see that for passengers, they'd have great views, and from all over the boat.

They must have had several wing walkers

Looked like a nice job by the captain...didn't notice but I was surprised to not see a guy on each side with a large fender to let it roll on...just in case.


That would just be another normal day for many a tugboat driver. Try that with a long push and no bow thruster..of course you don't have to worry as much about the "yacht finish" if you do bump. :D


I'm more impressed with the tug crews that push a wide dredge through an opening like that and have to coordinate snaking a 1000 feet of dredge pipe through trailing behind.

Looks like about 20 knots blowing from the port to starboard. And the vessel is long and thin. :thumb:

Peter B, I thought the design of the IPad kind of odd too.
