I visited the Miraflores and Gatun locks of the Panama Canal and got to see several large freighters pass through. Pictures, even with a UWA lens don't really give a proper sense of scale.


Here's the NYK Rigel on its way through the Gatun lock

If you mean the sides of the hull, I think that is the design of the ship. I checked out some other images of the AAA-Korea class boats and they all look the same down the hulls. If something else is bent it's probably something i screwed up!

Heavy lift construction vessel HLCV Borealis (now known as Seven Borealis) was built by Sembawang Shipyard, in Singapore. Hull fabrication was done at the Nantong Yahua Shipyard. The crane vessel, which is owned by Subsea 7, was delivered in early 2012. Seen here in the Bay of Gibraltar with the Spanish Port of Algeciras in the background.

Great image, Ian. It looks like a cross between a ship and a rig. Never seen anything quite like it in these parts!

Thanks Annie, I've never seen anything like it either, that's why I took the pic, despite the bad light.
I believe it is on pipe laying duty in the Med, called into Gib for some minor repairs.
