Boaty McBoatface, is that you?

Deep in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge is a raging fire. This raging fire is threatening the small town of Cascade Locks, Oregon, that a mandatory evacuation order for residents to leave. The single-stack ship, Un-Cruise Adventures S.S. Legacy, is moored in the old locks the ships once used to navigate around the rapids before Bonneville Dam wiped it out.

The one thing that caught my eye was the crew exiting the wheelhouse with a pair of large discs. One of the crew member unveiled a disc. It was white with a black spot area. Then that disc was hung in front of the wheelhouse window. Then another.

It was googly eyes for a boat.

Is that you, Boaty McBoatface?
