Hi Terry,

thanks, and please keep posting your images, whatever type, as there are so few photos of Japanese vessels about, especially in the European area. I shall keep adding more, as I put some details to my photos.

I sent you a private message (pm) did you receive it?

Interesting arrangement. More typical of a tanker.

Thanks Cadman, I'm not a fan or expert of heavylift ships but I think the intention was to put the heavylift derrick at the central part of the ship. That way the holds would be at the widest part of the hull, and if the cargo was too large to fit in the hold, it would be carried on deck at the widest part of the hull. Objects like transformers, generators, large pipes, locomotives, smaller ships and heavy plant machinery would normally be transported in or on ships of this kind......

Meanwhile here is a pair of rakish Mitsui Senpaku Kaisha motorships in post-merger 1964 Mitsui-OSK livery......

This layout was used by a number of early heavy lift vessels built in the 1950's and 60's. Large and heavy single structures could be carried on a relatively small hull in this way as the heavy structures would be placed near the center of buoyancy, where the ships' engines would be in a traditional design. A similar ship, Lichtenfels, was used by a german shipyard to transport FAC's to its customers in the 1960's. PM me if you're interested in a low quality GA drawing of Lichtenfels.
