  • Missed this one - fascinating John
    • Thanks, Howard.
    • The unusual bow shape/design might be connected to the fact this vessel is Beached sometimes when spraying sand /etc from the front jet nozzle
    • Needs research! I will contact for the sheer hell of it.
    • No response - what you unfortunately expect from some firms!
  • I think these were fitted because the anchors would hit the bulbous bow on the way down. Maybe a design fault.
    • Cheers Jack.
    • More info she was Converted to TSHD in 2001 Rebuilt in 2012 maybe this conversation warranted the change in design?
    • Cheers, Jack
