Imagine you´re in your little boat having trouble and suddenly the grandest ship in the world shows up close to you.
|Quoting MadameConcorde (Thread starter):|
Saturday night Queen Mary 2 diverts and rushes to the aid of a small craft that lost power and was taking on water off the coast of Maine. In cold and windy conditions Queen Mary 2 stays with vessel until 4am until Canadian Coast Guard Arrives. Happy Ending and Queen Mary 2 will arrive Halifax 6 hours late.
As Halifax was her second of 2 ports it appears The Commodore decided they could stay later and he can make up the time, which he's gotten quite good at lately.
The 345-metre Queen Mary 2, which rises more than 60 metres above the waterline, was the closest ship to receive the rescue centre's general distress call and reached the pleasure craft at about 12:45 a.m. AT.
The boat eventually regained power and the Queen Mary 2 was not needed.
Kudos to Commodore Warner! He is The Man!!!
Go Queen Mary 2!!

I caught that moment on video when the little children were taken near the Big QM2 for their sailing lesson on their little sailboats..
