Could have been sunnier, but a nice picture anyway. The sport-fishing boat has got prime attention, what do they catch in Papeete, marlin there too?

The fish in the link is a Marlin for sure Frank; some pay a lot of money to enjoy hauling one in. More fight than in a Cod I understand.

According to this text (Simplon), the cruise ship is not yet named solely Gallileo: 1963: Entered service as Galileo Galilei for Lloyd Triestino on their Italy-Australia service. 1979: Re-entered service for Italia Crociere after conversion to fulltime cruise ship. 1983: Sold to Chandris, re-entering service on Caribbean cruising as Galileo in 1984. 1988: After further rebuilding, renamed Meridian as a member of Chandris' new upmarket Celebrity Cruises.1997: Sold to Sun Cruises (Singapore) and renamed Sun Vista. 20th May 1999: Sun Vista, ex-Galileo Galilei sunk off the Malaysian coast following an engine room fire. No fatalities reported.
Regards, Stein.
