    The most thing I found interesting about that video is that she was accompanied by a tug that took a line from her. Better watch that paint Mr. Tug.

    I was surprised by this as well. It looks as if the tug had a blanket/cover over their "fenders"

    116-meter "Ulysses" arriving in Gibraltar and then docking. Looks like she has lost some paint on her port side bow just in front of the anchor pocket.

    She has a reasonably pronounced list in that video. I went back and looked at some other vids of her underway and didn't see anything like that. Did you hear anything more about that damage on the bow? Could she have damaged one of the stabilizer fins?

    there are rumors that Mr Hart is looking to sell Ulysses, it's believed he has another yacht under construction.

    Rumours are rumours...Where in the world would he have another expedition vessel in build. There has been a new one that technically launched at Astilleros de armon but... I doubt that is his...

    She looks to have taken a hit to both sides, same location.

    At first it looked like rode chafe, but then it moved as the camera circled the bow. Finally figured out that I was looking at the boot stripe pattern on the bulb reflected by the hull.

    That was certainly the rumor. But, when Kleven filed for bankruptcy two-years ago, that project was not disclosed as part of the bankruptcy filing; contract assets/liabilities generally have to be disclosed in bankruptcy filings just like anything else on the balance sheet. So, I'm inclined to believe it was just that, a rumor.

    On the books is IMO 9843156, which I have always believed was the 3rd member of Harts trio of ships.
