IMO : 5280540
Build : 1950 by Fredriksstad MV – Fredriksstad in Norway, nr 333 as Pol XIV (a whaler)
The Sea Shepherd organization, worldwide known & the subject of a few posts here on this website: this is one of their vessels and it is painted in their signature paintjob: black, black & black on black, with a bit of yellow. And as already condemned in earlier posts (I, II & III) : it is again condemned on this vessel. Yuk, ugly!
But the Sea Shepherds have apparently hired a new in house Stylist because they have changed the paintjob of the above Bob Barker, from the glooming black to a fresh looking camouflage-style dazzle pattern.
Please also note the shark teeth! Sharp!
Me likeeee! I really do! Hopefully they will also paint the other vessels in the same fashion, makes a refreshing change from the doom & gloom as they are now.
Btw: The Bob Barker being a former whale hunting vessel is even more ironically as the Steve Irwin being a former Fisheries Protection Vessel.
