    No, like actual Shipping container ships. Where all the "Better then you" Longshoremen work.

    When I was a factory guy for honeywell, I did work on some oil tankers and Navy vessels. The oil tankers were kinda nuts because if you made a mistake, you could possibly pump oil at the wrong time or place, ugh!. Neatest thing was when you needed parts, the captain could get you in touch with the manufacturer on a satellite phone, and parts would come from wherever they had to on the next crossing of the atlantic. That was kinda cool. Hey, go sit in the commissary, parts will be here in about seven hours! NICE
