Flashback week 27-2009

This week last year I was back in full swing after my little trip for my employer, so now you can enjoy a full post with loads of different victims as a reminder of those times.

A prime example of the uglyfication of a somewhat bland vessel : Clodia

Which way is she going?? Abegweit, an ugly ferry.

Beautiful names, or not??

The Ocean Wrestler : a banana-shaped tug.

Tugster convinced me to do a Swimday-special : the Solar boat.

Looks like she is missing a whole part : Presque Isle.

An ugly ship “par excellent” : Mrinal VI.

A country wide contest in Germany to come up with this name : Mein Schiff.

Far Samson, a real monster if the seas.
