It may not look that big from a distance when you see it on the water
but when you get up close it's a pretty big boat. Not on the scale of a super tanker but big just the same. The wife and I were up much too late one night enjoying a warm evening in the cockpit
of our boat when we decided to take a closer look at the Maltese Falcon anchored nearby, so we hopped in the dinghy
and did some sightseeing (at about 2am). Just circling the boat took a few minutes, just when I pulled in closer to look in one of the lower ports
I heard someone clearing their throat rather loudly, that's when I noticed the armed security
guard looking down on me from about 20' above. So we just smiled and waved and left quickly, he didn't return the greeting but smiled just the same.
It's a large vessel, but pretty to look at, I wouldn't turn down a tour of the luxurious appointments.
Never did get to see what was inside that port, probably the crew quarters in the bilge
