Default Weird ships!

Searched without success for an existing thread on this topic - if I missed it, my apologies - but thought the video at the link was a great compilation of shots of some off the oddest vessels at sea today!

Ah, the weird ships that people build. For me, the weird ones always include the HMS Furious as built and possibly as designed.

Certainly some unusual hull shapes, can understand the functional working ships, but some of those private yachts are so ugly.

These new cruise liners to me are ugly looking and look top heavy and how passengers enjoy their trips with thousands of other passengers flooding the decks beats me, the dance floors alone must be the size of 2 football pitched to handle the crowds---but there again I`m a small ships man where you get to know every one.

While this video concentrates on current vessels, there have certainly been some weird designs in the past.

My favourite has always been the circular monitor Novgorod built by Russia in the 1870s.
