This is one ace you couldn't slip into your vest pocket.

Really strange shape. Seems like a miracle that it floats and doesn't turn over.

it appears to be belching out a dark cloud of smoke.

Reminds me of those armoured cars used by banks to transport money... Interesting.

It is an interesting looking boat, piqued my curiosity, what does it carry, who does it belong to, etc etc, but then I'm always full of questions! Terrific captures as always, JM! Have a great weekend!

Not so old. Built in 2006.

Eu gostei do nome do navio e suas fotos estão maravilhosas, que azul intenso do mar!

I've never seen one quite like that!

I have missed your wonderful compositions. Strange ship, indeed; weird, even. Wonder what it was carrying.

Thanks for your concern, JM. Our daughter is improving and hopefully will go home from the hospital within a few days. We'll be in Colorado for a while longer, though.

I see these ungainly vessels quite often here in Livorno: they are car carriers.

A ship from out of space. Thankfully VP provided an explanation!

Beautiful.

Very unusual.

Jack said...

Not a very appealing vessel, is it?

Interesting ship. What a name and is it so marvelous???

I know there's a science behind it, but by just looking at them, it still surprises me that they float at all!
