    Even by the standards of hideous modern cruise ships, this baboon-arsed example that's sitting in the Mersey looks like it's been beaten with an ugly stick.

    The RFA Tidespring, apparently a replenishment tanker, was moored at the cruise ship terminal in the Mersey while I was out for my dinnertime stroll today.

    The Coast Guard Cutter Thunder Bay, which is often deployed as an icebreaker on the Hudson during the winter, just sailed past.

    I got paid a fair whack to entertain people on one which went round the Caribbean, it was an interesting experience but not one I'm especially keen to repeat.
