Good review of the meeting of the ships in Maritime Matters.

I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Long Beach harbor is too shallow for QE2 to have gotten very close to the QM.  When QM2 visited she was fairly far away in deeper water.

Even with QV's considerably shallower draft, she still wasn't able to come alongside the QM during her recent visit.

 

How about having a meeting of the QE2 Club aboard the QM2?
