Not a single water-droplet can escape from your lens, CM! The facial expression of the 'commander' is very well captured. Great work! V

Fantastic colour and action. I love the hose over the side of the foreground boat for pumping out bilge water ... no doubt an essential extra. Well done, CM.

This is really a splendid photo; I like the three different levels all in horizontal and the bursting energy which is conveyed to the viewer.
Your technique is excellent, as always and you way to take this kind of documentary photos, even though very realistic, is also very personal and evocative.
The whole series seems to be fascinating...and so exotic at my European eyes...
