IMO: 9143984

Build: 1998 by Volkschiffswerft Stralsund – Stralsund in Germany, nr 415

To start off with, I’m sure this vessel is very good at her job, and doesn’t need to look good to do it…

But, she kind of has that look that the first model of her was built out of LEGO’s. Someone ran out of the color they were using, so they decided to start putting in pieces of another color. When they got to the next section, the same technique was repeated.

Whoever was next down the line evidently thought the color combination was kinda cool, and stuck with it when the ship was built. In fact, they stuck so close to the design that the chunkiness and random protrusions produced by the LEGO’s were even kept.

Again, while she may be a very useful vessel serving the German Coast Guard, and a pleasure to see doing her much-needed jobs, she certainly is not one to look good doing them.
