This is how the vessel used to look before the conversion to cattle carrier:

On the 2nd of september 2020 this vessel and 40 of its 43 crewmembers went missing in the East China Sea during a typhoon, three crewmembers were later found alive on the location of the sinking, unfortunately one of them died after being rescued.

I “discovered” this ugly looking vessel earlier in the year and hadn’t posted it yet.
I did think long & hard about what to do with this one and I decided to post it anyway.

Let this be a small monument to the memory of the seafarers who sailed on this vessel & are still missing at sea, and as a general reminder to how ugly the shipping industry can be.

May all rest in peace and lots of strength to the family & friends of the deceased & missing crew.

More on this disastrous event can be found on the various news channels on the internet.

I’d like to wish you all to:

Have great trips with fair winds and a following sea,
Keep the wet side down,
And may all your landfalls be expected!

Bon Voyage for the whole of 2014.

& Keep hunting for Ugly Ships! ;-D

BBBBBBusy Times…….

uglyships-logo.jpgHello you!!

I’m back from the Grand Banks, haven’t done a George Clooney on you (hint: The Perfect Storm) and I will start to give some attention to this little site. Unfortunately things at Ugly Ships-central will quit be busy for the coming time…….so I’ll try to do a daily update but when that doesn’t happen: please don’t be afraid!! There will be more coming, just not at the moment you thought to expect it!

So see you around!!

Grtz,

SeaBart!

Busy, busy, busy & some Offshore work

Posted: 8 May, 2009 by SeaBart in Uncategorized

uglyships-logo.jpgHello There….

Due to some busy times here at Uglyships-central the posting of new discoveries has been a bit irregular, this will unfortunately continue for a little while. Also the fact that I have a last-minute kinda-urgent Offshore-job in Canadian waters (courtesy of my new employer) doesn’t help the regular update process here.

So please hang in there, or here, come back now & then and I promise that as soon as I got a bit of time on my hands AND a decent internet-connection I will be posting again.

Don’t hold your breath though!!

Thanks for the patience, understanding etc etc and I’ll be back asap…….

Grtz
