Thanks james,
Glad you like the photo, a strange looking vessel indeed. I would like to see her in action, just to see how it's done!

Nice set of pictures.
Fantastic looking vessel.
But strange to see the ramp for the pipes coming from the bow.
She must run astern to lay pipe.
ALLSEAS must have researched the system.
Thanks for posting

Very special one Derek.
I'm glad you spotted her.

Thanks Martin, glad you like it.
DEREK SANDS on Jun 29, 2007 06:06 (11 years ago)
I agree that she certainly is strange looking.
Glad you like the photos, remember when she was first at the ship yard and the original funnel was on the dockside after it had been taken off!

First time i see a ship like this! Good picture!

She is certainly one of the most weird looking vessels of which have seen pics. Great batch, Derek!
