Heavy Load


An unusual boat, plying the summer waters of Port Phillip Bay, past Queenscliff and heading out to Bass Strait through The Rip.
I had to Google some details.
This ship was only built in June 2012 - adding to the large NYK-HINODE Japanese fleet of heavy load carriers.

Chunky carrier
Like a bold challenge to seas 
Monster of the deeps

NOTE: While it is my turn to post, MMT is the keeper of links for this blog.
But she is away in Ireland!
So I have used my own inLinkz account which is set to GMT time not PST time.
Hopefully I have aligned the two time zones.
Please be patient if this post appears and not inLinkz!

Mighty ship rolling fearlessly om the blue waves.

I'll have to check in for Mr. Linky, I guess. I envy MMT who is in lovely Ireland.

That is an amazing ship - not beautiful so much as impressive. Function defines its true beauty...I like how that is called 'The Rip', it must be quite choppy traversing that strait!

That is a great shot and those babies are so so huge!

I am always amazed when I see them at the harbors with my hubby!

I got mine up late but it's good to be back.

Happy RT to all!
