It started innocently enough: a one-off Facebook post about a pile of ship. Then, Huckberry reader Andy Mowrey noted that the ship carrying all of those ships was recently carried by another ship. Pandora’s Box (aka The Google) was opened, revealing a whole host of incestuous relationships between planes, trains, and automobiles. Herewith, a post cataloguing a few of our favorite finds.

    These ships are big business now. They have just commissioned one that can lift 117,000 tonnes and can be used to lifts offshore pfoduction ships and dry dock them in situ without sending them to dry dock 1000’s of miles away.
    They use these to move things like container cranes, damaaged vessels, oil rigs etc etc.
    I will send an email to WO about these and he can post.

    Some years ago one of these vesels was loading/unloading a cargo off W Africa and a vent was left open and she went down!!!!
    Saw one of these in the late 80’s off Hyundai Dockyard at Mipo and it was picking up an oil rig. Whnet the RN frigate hit the rocks off Norfolk she was sent home on one of these as was the Sir Triatram and ASir Lancelot from the Falklands and that was 30 years ago.
    They also have vessels that carry yachts from point to point. There you are bethed in Cannes and the owner wants you a= in Antigua then a small version of this one picks you and a few others up and off you go.
