Sailor's message & picture exchange

This website specialize in communication, both verbal & visual.  Here there are over 20,000 ships, so it's highly unlikely that you won't find your ship here if you have to move from ship to ship.  What your not here for is to see what someone else has done, as it's you who are going to determine whether there is anything to see at your ship by what you contribute to it.
