The next time you're struggling at IKEA

Trying to get a flatpack table in the boot, spare a thought for these blokes. They carry anything from pranged warships to oil rigs. They also run a shuttle service to carry shiploads of yachts back to Europe from the Caribbean every year in advance of the hurricane season.

They're a Netherlands firm. Natch.

I reckon they could fit about 200 Raedwalds on that deck.

Update
Ahem, the Mighty Servant 3 shown in the pic unfortunately sank off the Angolan coast after offloading a rig. She is currently resting in about 60m of water and Dockwise have recently appointed SMIT Salvage to salvage her. Let's hope they succeed. Many thanks to Martin for the heads-up.

I wont curse and swear next time when I am trying to fit something large and round in the trunk of my car :)
