Flashback week 43-2009

And here we are again: this time we do have something to look back to.

Starting off with Funny Names, always good for a laugh.

Remember the recurring port about the Aeria? She was also featured on gCaptain.com.

“Diving support, pleasure and dwelling craft”, yup indeed : the Orbiit.

The first post of Fairlane, the (then-) new contributor to this site : Emma Miller.

The Armanborg :  an ex-Strange Stubby Tug, now Quirky Looking.

A vessel with a Schnoz : Mudyug.

Rebuild/converted/modified/lengthened/sank & start all over : Silja Opera.

Lorelay: Menacingly ugly Monster of the Seas.

Flashback Week 41-2009

After some very quiet weeks here on uglyships.com (due to holydays, work & a wee lack of inspiration) I’m gonna make a fresh start today, no more holidays planned, work is suspended for another 3-4 weeks and inspiration has to come now. Let’s start off with the standard monday morning exercise: the Flashback to last years week, nr 41 this time.

We had a (European) look at strange crane (the bird)-like American tugs.

Another bird-comparison came for the Escravos LPG FSO.

 

Dunno source, via the Interweb

These floating cars were actually not compared to but named after an animal : Plathypus Amphibious Jeep.

A lame joke but somebody got inspired by it : Spabunker Twenty.

A superfluousness of accommodation & windows : Nils Strömcrona.

The mystery of the Mystery Sailingboat was quickly resolved.

And I went offshore once again.
