Exiting the Gate

Container ships really get going after they pass through the Golden Gate - it's remarkable what distance they cover when they go full speed...  Also, they really should be covered with solar sails, shouldn't they?  And maybe regular sails?

(Ocean Beach in the foreground; modern Cliff house at center right; Mt. Tamalpais' peak just left and above it, beyond the hills in between, spreading to the ship on the center left; a bit of Point Reyes' mountains in the front of the ship at left.  The rocks between the boat and the Cliff House are Seal Rock(s), brought to you by the same creative minds who named the beach Ocean Beach. (Ha!)  Given more observation, they might now prefer to call them Loud Gull Rocks.)
