“The artist, who works under the pseudonym Rokudenashiko – which roughly translates as “good-for-nothing girl” – was arrested after emailing the data to 30 people who had answered a crowd-funding request for her recent artistic venture: a kayak inspired on her own genitalia she calls “pussy boat””

Not only did this nigga end up in the wrong place he did it im a tiny swagless ship. I’m done.

This kind of makes it sound like Zheng He only had one ship, or maybe some tawdry three-boat dealio like Columbus. Nah, admiral Zheng He commanded an imperial armada of more than 300 ships and 28,000 crew men on his seven ambassadorial expeditions to destinations from Indonesia and Sri Lanka to Somalia and Tanzania.
The largest were massive treasure ships (pictured in the model above) with nine masts and four decks, over 400 feet long, accommodating 500 people and many tons of cargo. Zheng He’s fleet included over 60 treasure ships, in addition to numerous other vessels with varying purposes such as storing fresh water, food stores, livestock, and military supplies. 
Also, Zheng He wasn’t exactly an explorer, at least not in the Western sense of people like Columbus or Livingstone, sailing off into the unknown and “discovering” places where people were already living. Zheng He’s fleet followed well-known trades routes which had been used by Chinese, Arab, African, and Indian traders for centuries. 
If you haven’t seen the spectacular documentary “Zheng He: Emperor of the Seas”, which includes dramatic recreations by the acclaimed director Chen Kaige, I highly recommend it. Here’s a preview.

Big bada boat. Bada big. Bada big boat.
(Yes I’m aware it’s a ship not a boat)

Tom Pullings takes after Captain Aubrey, with long hair and relatively traditional dress. He is, however, neater and more put-together — which may be due to his role as second-in-command onboard ship. Since Aubrey’s method of leadership is rather paternal and flexible, Pullings has to be more by-the-book in order to balance things out. An interesting detail in Pullings’ costuming is his bicorn hat, which he wears “fore-and-aft” in contrast to Aubrey’s “athwartships”. Athwartships was the fashion favoured by the older generation, modelled off Nelson’s style, and this type of variation within the uniform is a clear sign of how much Naval uniforms were influenced by the changing fashions of the period.  — The costumes of Master & Commander, Part 2.
