Although it has been a bit quite around here, it doesn’t automatically mean that I have been sitting around doing nothing. I have been and am at the moment very busy, mainly doing offshore stuff but I did find some time here and there to launch a new website: Nauti-Cool.

During my travels over the uncharted waters of the oh-so famous Interwebs searching for victims to present to you on this very site I also sometimes stumble upon cool Nautical stuff: pics, vids, quotes & more, and I thought it to be a pity I couldn’t share them with you out there.

So if you fancy a refreshing taste from the daily ugly bizznizz here then please feel free to go visit the new neighbor and have a look! (there will be (hardly) no ramblings from me……must also be a good thing!)

Flashback week 39-2009

I’m on a boat, floating around somewhere in the Baltic, and you are looking for Ugly boats. Well, let’s have a look what was considered ugly last year.

HNoMS Skold was on the list, plastic toy-look-a-like.

Once again an ugly English Channel Ferry : Oleander.

Wappen von Hamburg Flower Power.

Hat-like accommodation under a heli-hat: Seaway Explorer.

Tonndorf showed a frighteningly bright paintjob.

Deffo not a good looker : Paritetboat looker 350.

Nice blue hull-color but the rest?? Natalie (ex-Ocean Scotsman).

Oversized funnels, the other way…….

A non-ugly one for a change : Ark Forwarder.

Very simple: plain ugly, the Seiju Maru 21.

The second part of us looking at WOWO-carriers.

The ants of the maritime world: Little Pusher Tugs.

Sinclair Petrolore

IMO : ??

Build : 1955 by National Bulk Carriers Inc., Kure Shipbuilding Division – Kure in Japan, nr 35

Via the Facebook extension of this site Mike Hogan expressed his opinion about the Sinclair Petrolore: basically saying she was the ugliest vessel ever to float on (more…)

Offshore & busy

Posted: 1 September, 2010 by SeaBart in personal

Offshore & busy.

Or should that be the other way around?? Anyway, right back from holiday I just had enough time to repack my bag to go back on board of my vessel for another 4 weeks of Fun & Offshore games.

And due to a lack of time (and a bit of inspiration) I have not prepared posts for the coming time (except the regular Flashbacks) so it might go a bit quiet here.

But that will change in due time (hopefully).

Have a good one, grtz from the seas.
