Thanks for chiming in guys!
after looking up the design you guys nailed it.


Sure is a bad mofo.com this baby is more about what it brings to the fight than ship to ship combat - but still respectable enough and likely will never be really alone, but escorted by an Arliegh Burke destroyer.

Hilarious- last nigh on a TV show (build it bigger I think) I saw a guy

(You know the one - the show stars a quasi douche-bag host that's completely non physical, has no friends, and apparently has never experienced anything "type guy")

- do a complete tour of this ship- unbelievable design & super efficient.

Thanks for chiming in - BTW San Diego was awesome this last week.

Do you still have to be a billionaire to move there or are things coming back down to earth?

Pics are sweet, which carrier is that?

Thanks 2112!

It doesn't seem to be an affordable place even now.
I didn't really leave the resort too much on foot- just down to the end of the island for the wicked Mai-tais at the Bali-Hai. (seriously strong)

Thats actually the USS Midway from WWII its more of a floating museum than anything else, we sponsored a company party on it for about 1000 people there 2 years ago during the Siggraph convention.

Heres a few picts of the journey trying to get the GF some Seat time she took all the classes-

BUT when the big fog rolls in shes not ready yet for full instruments only navigation yet- but is getting there

Take a look at that that fog bank- I jumped into the seat and switched to a split screen view the way I like it for fog.

1. with the radar broken up into to separate ranges 3 lower right nad 1/2 mile on the upper right

2. a 3d course up view with the radar sweep overlaying onto the GPS
map.
