Sidney Candies

IMO: 9231341

Build: 2000 by Bender Shipbuilding & Repair – Mobile, Alabama in US of A, nr 6930

Sometimes when you meet a person, there’s just one thing about them that instantly jumps out at you. From that point forward, you recognize that person solely based on that single characteristic. It could be the infamous schnoz, or a giant mole, or even over-sized ears. Even if the rest of their face is hideous, that one thing just stands out above the rest.

Well, some ships have the same affliction affecting them, too. In the case of the Sidney Candies, that problem is massive stacks.

From any angle, they protrude obviously from the sides of her bridge. Not seeing them is like trying to ignore Sean Connery’s accent, it just isn’t going to happen. They’re so big that you don’t really even notice that the rest of the ship is nowhere near pretty, either.

And if one wasn’t enough, there’s a whole family of big-eared anchor-handlers:

    i’d love to know the design logic, but the execution, ugh! . . i’d be embarrassed too work on this tug.

    I worked together with a few of these in the GoM, was funny to see them coming over the horizon….first you spot the funnels and quit a bit later you see the rest of them!
