A Matter of Proportions / Una Cuestión De Proporciones

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

I LOOKED UP from my morning coffee on a recent day to see a parasail in the distance. At first glance the "boat" pulling it looked to me to be a bit excessive. But then I looked again.

MIRÉ DESDE MI café un día reciente para ver un parasail en la distancia. A primera vista el "barco" que tirando me parecía un poco de exceso. Pero entonces miré de nuevo.

      If it could ever get up to speed. More likely you'd never get out of the boat.

  7. Now that would have been a great sight to see a ship of that size doing what 45 knots instead of about 12.

      I really did have to do a double-take. I knew it was possible, but my vision was much more limited than the photo.
