Cool thanks for the link Manfred, I just assumed the dents were from a docking procedure, certainly an interesting ship though.

Thanks Manfred for the explanation. This was a exciting vessel during her heyday, but the container concept must have ended this form of cargo carrying.

Hi all,
the dents in the bow occurred when the barges were towed in and out like in this link:

Could be that she did not hit anything, but just the anchor chain scrapping along when she is anchored offshore and the current swings thus bringing the bow against the chain.
Incidentally great photo showing the massive swing clam shell doors.
thanks for sharing

That bow looks like it's had more hits than Elvis.

Now that is an interesting and historical view!
