The bow of the Cap Van Diemen.  

The stern and bow of the ship. Cap Van Diemen is a container cargo ship built in Poland, launched in 1998, and registered in the Netherlands Antilles. It is 636.7 feet long, 92.5 feet wide, and displaces 29,240 tons.

A close-up of the ship's lifeboat at the stern. To abandon ship, everyone climbs into the lifeboat, the boat is released, then it slides down the ramp and drops into the ocean. To see a really neat video of a similar lifeboat being tested, check out the internet link, below.
