Delta Mariner

IMO: 9198501

Build: 2000 by VT Halter Marine – Pascagoula, Mississippi in USA, nr 1835

Nicknamed the “Foss Rocket Ship” due to its owner, the primarily tug and barge based Foss Maritime, the designation of a “rocket ship” seems a little out of place.

She looks more like a squat little version of a car carrier instead of anything that could go fast, let alone into space…

Really, she isn’t overly ugly, still enough to be an OUS, just not at the extreme end of the spectrum, but she’s definitely awkward.

However, in case you’re wondering, there is a very literal reason behind her nickname. Just take a look at her cargo…
