Are red stripes on "funnels" don't align on purpose?

Yes , calling them chimneys just doesn't 'stack' up :)

Rick ,I see it wasn't a Maritime person who wrote that calling the funnels chimneys 😃

At least it's not balancing an oversized football on a funnel - unlike the other hotel behind

An interesting concept, thanks Igor.

Copied from the web:
"Astoria was built in 1991 at the Volkswerft shipyard in Stralsund, Germany, and towed to Gothenburg in 1996. In 1997, the hotel business started on the ship in Gothenburg.

The 100.4 meter long and 11.7 meter wide ship is built of modules on a barge to mimic a transatlantic steamer. The ship has no engine and has never been in operation as anything other than a hotel. The chimneys were set up so that the ship would receive a building permit.

The 1,800-tonne floating hotel has 120 rooms with 245 beds."
