That said, he gave me some of his personal pics of Cunard's Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Victoria in rough seas as they chased each other across the North Atlantic for Vicky's New York debut, a couple years back.
My buddy Dave was aboard QE2 and his buddy was an engineer aboard Vicky and they took these pics while texting each other in real time. From what he related, the texts went something like this:
Vicky to Lizzie: "You're a dragster."
Lizzie to Vicky: "You're a submarine."
Vicky to Lizzie: "Dragster, submarine."
Lizzie to Vicky: "Submarine, dragster."
Queen Elizabeth 2
