I believe that's bay mud churned up by the tanker's screw. SF bay is very shallow there.

Nice images. The stern looks a bit strange, like an addition was added. I suppose that was done during the 1989 refit, since earlier pictures don't show that change.

I thought that Capn'. Maybe it adds some sort of stabilisation.-?
Some of these ships always seem to have too much built above the water line. But let's not start a war on this thread about ship design.:-)

Thanks for the link. A good link is always interesting - trouble is - you can spend a lot of time clicking on all the interesting-looking sub links.

Here are a couple more shots, chosen to show the stern section. Top Pic taken 2018. 4 images used to make a pano due to it's closeness.

Bottom Pic taken 2016. Heading to sea taken about 2 - 3 miles out.

More nice images.

Some of the newer passenger liners appear top-heavy to me, but there are probably standards for that sort of thing. I suppose it is no worse than the wind pressing on a bunch of canvas, especially sailing upwind. Maybe they just needed more space down there?? Just another guess...

It doesn't have to be seaworthy does it?

Queen Mary 2 reflected in the waterfront buildings of Halifax Nova Scotia and a more conventional shot of her moored up.

Ray you ought know its all to do with sea level rise. Keep it from being inundated when the ice melts.  :p
And to keep the paying passengers from losing their view
