There's a prison barge near New York City. It has basketball courts on the top at one end; they bear an amazing resemblance to the 'thing' atop Norwegian Epic O0

Frankly, the pride of God's Own Country has been shaken by a few revelations lately.
But do they need touting for pride with ugly ships to regain it?

I think one of these is the Bibby Venture. AKA coastel 2 (the grey one in the photos) sold to US for a prison ship I believe.


Lived on coastel 2 for 6 months.

This "ship's" appearance must be part of the punishment for the inmates.
Only the depraved, heinous US justice system can concoct such harsh measures.

These were the main accommodation for the British Army and RAF outside Port Stanley in the Falklands. For several years.
Long before the US got hold.

Just looking at the small tug, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everything about this little ship spells devotion to work with a smile, what a superb model it would make, if only you could build in the character element.
