If you want to be visible,

you can’t do much better than to layer on safety orange.  Think of the color you wear while biking or just being out during hunting season.  Think of road workers or anyone who has to be out near traffic.  With good reason, the Dutch Rijkspolitie (highway patrol) once used it on their pursuit cars. 

It works quite well on MSC Athens, that horizontal stripe across the top of the breakwater compounded by one atop the bridge.  It’s so bright the paint must have a reflective additive.

Cell service returns once you’re in or near port.



And as MSC Athens headed for port, another MSC, with the same markings

MSC Heidi, headed out.
