That is absolutely beautiful in a 'form enclosing function' sort of way - but what is it? :-))

I agree that is one ugly design. Even functional can be acceptable looking.

If you look at the link from Pirate it's the back end that lets it down with what appears to be the back end of a double-decker bus!

Looks as though they got the plans for 4 different vessels and mixed them up.  {-) {-)

That said, it's probably going to be super efficient at it's designed purpose. O0

C'mon Brian - when are you going to build a model of it ? %%

It is certainly striking looking.
It seriously looks like something out of the Transformers movies.

I draw the line with this one. Never would I build something like this Ray. I guess the bulbous nose is to allow it to slide on/off mudbanks if its a dredger for use in Indian delta areas, I just don't understand the reasoning behind it being so large.

I was also wondering about the size of the bulb. I notice it is very fat across the beam, compared to its height.

This was being built next to Kinderdijk (the world heritage windmill site near Dordrecht) in April.


I thought that it was interesting & a real challenge!

It's interesting the way the anchors have to be deployed on outriggers in order to clear that Jimmy Durante schnoz,

The shape of the bulb allows it to make speed in very shallow water.

It's interesting the way the anchors have to be deployed on outriggers in order to clear that Jimmy Durante schnoz,

Google got a few dozen new hits as a bunch of folks went to find out who Jimmy Durante was.  Good night Mrs Calabash, wherever you are.

I like industrial & I thought this interesting. I am not sure of the purpose of the red framework but I am sure that it is there for a purpose. The only one that I can think of is overhead load but???????????


I think it looks fine. If you want really ugly try any of the similar version of this:
