    Re: Visibility with whaleboats on davits

    Hi there - It shouldn't be a huge problem. The whaleboats ride high, and you can see between the gunwales and the boats. Also, they don't obscure every view from the deck. From both the foredeck and after deck there are clear views (though I don't know what the rules of the deck are going to be, outlining when the 38s can be where). There may also be some possibility of standing on deck structures or rigging elements to get views over the whaleboats. I don't think there will be a problem getting good photos, but it's a little hard to tell what is and isn't possible until we get our vessel orientation. Riding in whaleboats sounds like something that would probably not be allowed, but I could be wrong.
