Notice how wire strops are used to secured the hook so it doesn't flail about in a seaway. 
       Also, the starboard running light is far forward.  This requires an exemption from the regs
       as running lights are mandated to be at the aft end of the ship.  Not unusual with
       such a variety of ship construction these days.
