Ugly, Unknown, Strange & Fails

In my archives I have a folder called unknown and everything that I can’t identify eventually ends up in that folder. I thought now to be a good time to empty that folder and show you and the rest of the world the contents. Rest assured that although all are not identifyable they are either Strange, a Fail and/or Ugly.

Above you see an “Old Ship” and that’s all I know about her…..she is just looking weird! Below that you see a Red Boxy Contraption of some sorts which I also couldn’t place anywhere but sure as hell is and looks pretty strange!

Blue Worky Boatie

She is Blue and she is……….uhm…ugly!

Reddish Worky Boatie

Same as above but then in red and a bit more ugly.

Grey Worky Boatie

A grayish working boat but now with some strange additions on her.

Oldie Freighter

An old ugly freighter with a terrifying low freeboard in Luanda.

Funnel Yacht

A yacht with a HUGh funnel painted in my most favourite color: yukky-green.

What is this???

I have no clue……..nothing, nada, zilch, nop……..

Flat Floating Iron

It’s quit flat and …….well, that’s it actually.

Creepy Chinese (??) Things

They are pretty creepy and I don’t wanna know anything about them, they’ll probably hunt you in your sleep!

And now some “home-made” devices which I’m not gonna comment on, let the pictures do the talking, that’s probably more than enough.

I think some of the above are actually reasonably described by: FAIL!

    The first photo is a mothballed US navy Landing Ship Dock, or LSD, probably awaiting scrapping. The rear half is an enormous docking well for landing craft, hence the tiny funnels and heavy duty crane. The big domes forward are just part of the mothballing process and protect quad 40mm gun mounts from the elements. In service the guns are uncovered and the ship sits a bit lower in the water, helping the appearance a bit.

    The newest version in service has furureistic stealth lines.

    “Grey Worky Boatie”

    That is a oil/garbage clean up skimmer.

    The LSD is one one of the old Ashland class being scrapped. The other poster was correct the domes would cover exposed topside armaments (probably 40mm or 3-inch twin mounts). Without a hull number I couldn’t tell you exactly which one.

    “What is this???” picture
    The small boat is skimmer used for oil spill clean up.

    The “Red Boxy Contraption” is called IBEEV 1-4, her name stands for Ice Breaking Emergency Evacuation Vessel.
