Not much to do this week:

The Flashback to week 22-2009.

A weird Japanese sight seeing vessel: the Voyager.

V Kerkis

IMO : 8029064

Build : 1982 by Mhi Nagasaki Shipyard & Engine Works – Nagasaki in Japan, nr ?? as Shinho Maru

If you are a regular on this site you might remeber the Kergi, the Sea Baltica & Sea Nordica and the Balmung. The common demeanor for all these vessels is that they have holes in their respective accomodations. (more…)

Stanislav Yudin

IMO: 8219463

Build: 1985 by STX Finland – Turku in Finland, nr 1284

What does this ship have going against it?

Utterly hideous appearance, of course… (more…)

An Wu Jiang

IMO: 7904865

Build: 1980 by HDW Kiel – Kiel in Germany, nr 151 as Jonny Wesch

At first glance, I thought this was just another rather pleasant looking general cargo vessel in the Chinese shipping fleet, that, like many others, has survived much longer than most of its contemporaries by sailing in East Asia. However, a closer inspection revealed an “ugly” truth, she isn’t just another general cargo vessel, instead, there’s something strange about her… (more…)

Pyxis

IMO: 8514083

Build: 1986 by Shin Kurushima Onishi Shipyard – Imabari in Japan,  nr 2446 as Toyofuji No. 14

It seems to be pretty well established that car carriers are among the ugliest ships out there plying the cargo lanes. If that’s true, then only three quarters of a car carrier shouldn’t be as ugly, right?

Wrong. (more…)

NOR Tigerfish

IMO : 9399430

Build :2007 by Jaya Asiatic Shipyard – Batam in Indonesia, nr 860 as NOR Sky

I know that heli-decks are the latest “must have-accessory” in the offshore vessel world but in my opinion this is just a little bit over the top. Or actually: quite a bit OTT.
It’s like the shy gentle kid at school suddenly going all wild and showing up one day with a big pink mohawk.

At least the crew doesn’t have to bother filling up the forepeak ballast water tank anymore.

Here she is in her “gentle”-period.

Thansk again to Denis for the tip!

Flashback week 20-2010

The Boomtow Rat sang about why they don’t liked mondays, what’s not to like about mondays? Especially if there is another Flashback to get your week started right!

Here is the Flashback to week 20 of 2009.

The only thing we did in this week was looking at the Thialf, not the God but the SSCV, a monster of the sea.

Gloria Siderum

IMO : 7006754

Build :
Hada II (IMO 513945) : 1957 by De Groot & van Vliet – Slikkerveer in The Netherlands, nr 319
Hermes (IMO 514914) : 1956 by by De Groot & van Vliet – Slikkerveer in The Netherlands, nr 315
Both vessels were welded together in 1969 by De Groot & van Vliet” –  Slikkerveer in the Netherlands

Right, so you thought the idea of Allseas creating a catamaran of 2 existing vessels (the Pieter Schelte) was new. Well, it wasn’t. Somewhere in the second half of the 60’s somebody had a brainstorm and got the wild idea to weld 2 coasters together, put on a heavy lift derrick and thus creating a Heavy Lift Vessel. (possibly the genesis of the Heavy Lift World). (more…)
