I give it a 4.  It appears clean and light.

It certainly continues the brand of BlueMarine.  If that's what is wanted, 
this is a good replacement.  The icons are nice, although the "error" red "do 
not proceed" shield is too big compared to the rest of the theme.

One problem is that the droplet is glaringly an incompatible color with the 
rest of the blues in the color scheme.  I'd suggest changing one or the other 
to match hue values better.

I am not sure if this is an XHTML/CSS comment or not:

    I am forced to horizontally scroll in my default browser window.  I hate that.
