Graham Darling, who made the above picture, send this one in the tip-hotline. And boy: I nearly needed a new laptop as I almost spat out the whole contents of my mouth (mostly Coke) after laying eyes on this green monstrosity. (Note to myself: ensure mouth is empty before opening uglyships-emailbox.)
And OMG: how ugly is this one. Starting with the strange-ish lines on the bow, the almost cute little snub nose, the ginormous cranes in the middle, the tall accommodation block with the greenhouse bridge & the flat lines of the stern. And to top it off she is painted in the most hideous color of green I’ve ever seen.
I only could find below picture of her so we can not ravel more of her in other views but I’m sure you are getting the picture.
What I did find however were 2 sisterships: the Green Diamond & the Red Diamond. Both have a bit different design bridge which makes the overall look even more pittyfull, please see below:
Red Diamond (IMO 7413323)
Green Diamond (IMO 7116406)
Both the above ships seem to have been anchored at Balboa Roads for a while now, seems the owners have abandoned them, maybe because they realized they were socalled “Fugly”.
Apparently more of these vessels have wandered over the 7 seas, named the Miniliners or Mini L’s.
And before you ask: Heuristic refers to experience-based techniques for problem solving, learning, and discovery. (more here on Wikipedia). Must be quit a clever boat then, he?
