I'll soon be adding some pictures to this blog. For now, here you see the vessel at its location in Stellendam, The Netherlands and me, next to similar ship in a dry dock. Notice how fishing vessels have a nozzle around their prop to improve their prop efficiency, particularly at low speeds.
It may be removed, depending on the outcome of the what the prop engineers will say . At higher speed (over 8 knots), depending on the design, they may make the prop more efficient.
