Excellent photos, It would be interesting to see how it performs in rough sea conditions including a moderate swell. Has anyone any idea of its underwater hull shape?

Great shot of this Sci-Fi looking vessel!


Kern Jack on Sep 30, 2013 03:03 (5 years ago)
I would of never thought seeing a ship this wide or in a roughly triangular shape, nice shot though.

Thanks for the response! Was about 10 spotters on the bridge this morning and cars stopped completely when they saw this "wall" come towards the bridge :-) I'm gonna try to take the departure also. Find uot when they leave and try to get the keys for the bridges towers again :-)

Cheers, Jens

Crazy Dimensions, almost more width than length.
Luis del Fresno Miyar on Sep 29, 2013 17:37 (5 years ago)
I belive she is a geosismic vessel, this type is called "cheese portion shape" she tows a lot of floating wires which produce explosions and receive the waves produced in the seabed indicating the possibility of petroleum in the area, this is the reason of the wide stern, to fit as much wires as possible.
Sure many of us met at sea ships of previous generations and notice to mariners and VHF informing about positiˇn course, speed, and the berth to be given.
Beg your pardon if explanation is not very good, I'm not an especialist in this ground.
jubo on Sep 29, 2013 14:58 (5 years ago)
Is this supposed to be part of a ship or is it the final ship afloat- are they mooving to a new shipyard to add more parts
Tom Gulbrandsen on Sep 29, 2013 12:52 (5 years ago)
Thanks :-) It's taken from our popular spotting bridge right outside of Bergen, the Ask°y bridge as seen here
