or “grey” ships have been ignored on this blog, til now. I’ve done orange, yellow, blue, green, etc. Grey, though, strikes this blogger as often offensive; it is camouflage after all, haze or fog grey rather than wet mortar grey. Yesterday I saw two vessels around the harbor, frustrating since I have found little on each.

Landing craft aka amphibious assault vessel? vintage?

This RORO seems to be called “Grey Shark,” but all I could find was that it seems to have traversed the Straits of Gibraltar around 1 August from Marseille for New York.

Unlike the landing craft , the big door opens aft. See a similar vessel called Norsky.
