Oddball bit of maritime information...

So, once again today our new suite of kitchen appliances (ordered May 8) did not arrive from the big-box home improvement store from which they were purchased... Apparently the shortage of transoceanic shipping capacity is real. Speaking recently to my sister-in-law, the CFO of a major hotel chain's renovation unit, it's gotten so bad that the big-box store in question has now bought its *own* container ship to try to make a dent in it's backlog of merchandise sitting on wharfs in China and Korea. I wonder if they'll paint the business name in big letters on the hull side... it would make an interesting addition to a 1/1250 fleet!
