Veka Blue Marlin Massive Ship Piggy-Back Orgy


Here is an absolutely massive cargo ship called the Blue Marlin from shipbuilding group Veka. It was engineered to, apparently, haul lots of big heavy shit across bodies of water.

Yo momma so fat…

Apparently, this beast is also semi-submersible (video here) so you can sneak up on unsuspecting ships and pull off the largest (in measure of mass) and scariest (in measure of adrenaline secreted) April Fools joke ever. But that feature also simplifies loading of certain types of cargo on days other than April-Fools.

Anchor envy

The Blue Marlin can also have its f-normous cargo loaded by crane as documented on this blog devoted solely to moving huge loads (huh huh). Caution: the massive amounts of testosterone on that page may be dangerous for young children and women.

Which is more impressive:

The ship which was engineered to support 18 barge’s worth of mass and carry it across open ocean.

-or-

The barge on the very bottom of the scrum supporting 4-5 times its own mass plus ocean induced load fluctuations.

Perhaps the barges were engineered to be staked that way?

Checkout the semi-submerged loading of 1…2…3…4…5… a-friggin-lot of barges onto a Blue Marlin:
