    Love-hate. Mostly hate.
    Up close it works in a few applications. From a distance... Not so much.

    You were not far enough away. Actually, I think it looks better than some that have graced this forum and some I see regularly in port. That is very small praise though.

    Weird externally. Perhaps quite pleasant for an occupant when weather is favorable.

    ... but what a sh^^&%*%t thing to have when docking, or after a rain storm. The windage must be astronomical.

    Its not a boat, its a floating garden.

    Yep, and than imagine the same situation in the middle of an ocean on board that ship, too. Huge waves, stormy winds, heavy rain etc... :D ;)

    Yup...and to tell you the truth, I dont like twinkling sunlight when I relax.

    I instinctively find someplace in the shade.

    On the Greenhouse boat, I would never be able to escape the tyranny of twinkling sunlight.

    Good point there. Energivorous is the word which comes to my mind when looking at that Voronoi ship.
