Hmmmm . . . can't read the logo,Gord, but I'm gonna guess . . . spaghetti? As far as the pic on the right - I'm not giving anyone the bird, understand, but aren't those swans?

Good guess, Tao. It says "MondoPasta, so good you can't let go".

Now, go get your eyeglasses prescription updated.

Heh. OK, Bionic Man, zoom in on those boats full of birds for me - geese or swans?

Good find! I thought it looked real, but when Tao said it looked like a model, I couldn't decide.

For anyone interested, here's a page with shots of that ship from all angles and different stages of open/closed: Piotr B. Stareńczak Ship and Maritime Photography

Awhile back I posted these pics to see if anybody knew what these mystery items are. They're mounted on a mast on a RCMP RHIB. I now know what they are!

Nozzles for fogging or laying down some sort of James Bond smoke screen?

Air quality sensors?

Conversation pieces?

I would guess, super sensitive microphones to catch people talking/shooting, etc..?? Or perhaps, a sound device to scatter crowds or riots.. If it's on top of a police car, it can't be too good...

They look like silencers for an exhaust system similar to air pump mufflers. (defusers)
