Identification help please.
« on: February 11, 2016, 06:50:12 pm »

I came across this strange photo some years ago and filed it as a curiosity - which it is. I do not think it is a model, and it's configuration defies belief!  I wondered if it was a spoof ship formed from Photoshopping but I can't see the point of that. It seems to be 'hinged' but despite magnification I cannot decide what it is for! The German flag appears to be evident but I can find no reference in their Grey Funnel listings.
Any ideas out there?
Bob the headscratcher!

Its for oil spill recovery, or it was when they came up with the design. They have better methods nowadays.
