Hello Gaetan, thanks for your info - I did never think of the thing, that the ship could have simply gone with high speed through a blotch of oil ! As well I thought that dumping oily waste into the sea is not, what they do anymore, nowadays.

Hi, the black spot on her bow is (according the ship's crew) oil which is dumped in the sea by other vessels in the shipping lines.
When a high speed vessel like m/v COSCO ANTWERP is going thrue this oil (which is on top of the water) it get's stuck on the ships bow.

Very good one, I just wonder is there a bit of damage on the bow or it's just a dirty ship ?
