A beautiful proof that it is the inside that counts and not always size.
Please have a good Wednesday.

Forgive my ignorance, VP, but what exactly does such a boat? The sea is too far away from my town...

@ Randy - Thanks for the tip, that's really an amazing bench!

@ Traveling Hawk - Tugboats assist vessels entering and leaving port. Some of the newer ships do not need their assistance, but the older and the larger ones can't do without.
