Here’s the first in a possible series.  These RORO have unusual lines, and

they’ve carried unusual cargoes like … a viking ship and an antique car from the Orient Express.  Juxtaposed with the cables of the Verrazano, the tail gate here has lines reminiscent of an electric guitar body,  well, a guitar body with rusty steel plate pressed down on the pickups; and more strings than a harp.  Imagine the sound of one many-fingered hand plucking.

For a ship, there seems an absence of curved lines on this 26-year-old vessel.
