Stolt’s parcel tankers are unique in appearance, but this dent on the bulbous bow betrays a singular encounter experienced by this vessel.  Ouuf!  No, I don’t know when and where it occurred.  It looks vaguely anatomical.

I wonder if this indentation (diminishing of confidence?)  will still be here next time Stolt Confidence visits the sixth boro.  Clearly it lacked this distinguishing mark when it was launched in Fredrickshavn 14 years ago.

Note Meagan Annpulling a dredge scow in some of these f0tos.

These fotos were taken midafternoon yesterday;  clearly, even on sunny days, we are in that dark time of year, when Stolt yellow mimics the wan sun light.
