    It must be dead easy to gin up the necessary accessories.

    There’s a similarly fake paddlesteamer running out of Sydney‘s Darling Harbour.

    Dunno about the San Diego version, but the Belle isn't at all "antebellum" inside.



    Its promoters seem to think that its distinctive appearance sets it apart in an increasingly crowded field

    We have one of those that plods back and forth on Mission Bay with drunken revellers on board. I don't really know what the pitch is: "Come an release your inner antebellum south while drinking alcopops on a pastiche boat on a man made bay."

    Used for tourism, I suppose?

    I saw that one today. Thought it was the lobstah boat at first.

    That looks almost tropical Paul. Hope the walk’s going well.

    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.

    That's definitely not homeopathic Arnica, because I can actually see it.

    The Celebrity X Cruises The Edge in Valletta Harbour. I imagine it's called that because it's boring and it echoes.

    Also: couldn't fit it all in to the photos.

    In town for London International Shipping Week, it appears.

    Landing craft have changed a bit.

    First navy ship in a while - the RFA Lyme Bay it seems. Sorry for the crappy photo. Will try to get a better shot tomorrow on my way to the shops.

    The rather marvelously named Red Cosmos came by yesterday, showing the superyachts just what a big ship looks like. She's currently at Hudson on the way to the bulk terminal just south of Albany,

    A new freight ferry is to begin at the end of this month, going from Tilbury to Calais. Operated by P&O it will be freight only with a crossing time of around 6.5 hours. By my reckoning that ferry could sail to the west of the Goodwin Sands thus cutting off an hour or two, but they can't sail that way under all tidal conditions (otherwise they would risk grounding) so the 6.5 hours is for the longer voyage to the east of the Goodwin and down to Calais that way.
