Relax Russ. Why would you have to go out on the boat, or even think you had to? I said the "video of the departure" in my post above. But since you're thinking about the tender, in my mind and from that picture, and with the angle of the steps, I'm sure it was a daunting experience for more than a few. Why would you try to gage my comment in such a short time span by saying you only knew about this particular ship a year ago, when it should have been "pretty easy" for you to know I was talking about the whole time that I've been the naysayer, while you are the cheerleader on this subject The timeline I mentioned is accurate.What is your problem with me Kenny. I wasn't going to go out on a boat to watch a bigger boat float away. I posted about our personal experience on the boat the day before the inaugural launch, I posted about the ease of getting on and off the ship by tenders. This is still a big deal for Peñasco. I doubt I have been cheer leading about the Astoria for "I don't know how long" a decade since I didn't even know she was coming until early last year. Get rid of the hate or whatever it is Bro.
