Oh! I just learned something new. Sub consciously I recognized that ship as belonging to the coast guard and now I know why - the stripe!

It looks like a very fast and efficient vessel VP, I must check out our boats and see what they use to personalize the red stripe. That sky looks a bit ominous!

Your Coast Guard guys seem all the more heroic since we watched them in dangerous situations around the Costa Concordia.

This is surely a massive Coast Guard ship. I didn't know about the red stripe's meaning.
