On the 24th of November in 2008, now more than 13 years ago this site was started by myself by posting the first Ugly Vessel. A lot has happened since then, not only on here but also in my life, and in the world.

And this very post is number 1000, quite a milestone…….Wow!

I didn’t know or expect it would go on for this long.

I have no idea how many vessels have been posted in all this time, it must be many more as a lot of posts contained more than one vessel.
If someone wants to count: please feel free to do so! But do please share the result.

The (and I quote from that first post) “very first Official Ugly Ship, the one that started this all” was the tug Battleaxe, see that post (later updated a bit) here.

And I thought I’d do a bit of an update on the Battleaxe so I’ve been looking all over the interwebs and the most recent picture I found was on Marinetraffic:

This one is from 08-07-2019, now almost three years ago….

The vessel actually still exist, which is quite an accomplishment these days, especially since it’s build in 1978, now 44 years ago. According to Marinetraffic.com it’s still floating around somewhere in Lagos. And looking at the above picture the vessel doesn’t look in a too bad condition.

Is there anyone that can provide me/us with a more up to date picture?

After all the Battleaxe and this site are kinda connected………

Thanks for all your attention, clicks, tips, encouragement and all the other ways you’ve interacted with me, that’s enough babbling for now, let’s get started with the next 1000!
