Kind of lost against that massive hull, huh?

Such tiny men.

"... Express" seems a funny name for a ship.

Oh wow! Glad you pointed out the two men, they really give a perspective on the size of this boat.

It is huge! I would never have seen those two guys had you not mentioned them.

A wonderful ship!
I also didn't notice those two men...

This is a superb composition...the rocks on the left and the two men in the pontoon make it perfect. I can't imagine driving one of these things!

If those two guys are painting that hull, they have job security for years to come.

Thanks for calling attention to those little men. They really illustrate how big this ship is!
