I wonder if the Dutch vessel Vliestroom is permitted within the parameters of this forum,  for a quick search generally and similarly specifically under off-shore vessels did not reveal a result of significance.

Has no member yet built a model of this buoy maintenance/repair/laying vessel? I would be surprised if that was the case for I would think many modellers would find it to be an attractive ship of which to make a model.

On looking at a few pictures it is evident that a number of changes have been carried out over the decades;  I am not sure I particularly like the current paint scheme.

One thing that has puzzled me so far is the location of the engines exhaust(s) on the original/earlier ship for nothing stands out as being the obvious outlet.

Comparing a few photos yesterday I note that in recent ones there appears to be two 'MTB-like' exhausts one at each end of the transom stern at bulwark level; but these are not there in other photos.

Any thoughts anyone?
