    It looks like it may be container cranes based on the original photo.

    Our ports did just rate bottom in world, so perhaps someone has woken up to the fact that ships have other options and decided to invest in more cranes? I am not sure how much quayside there is in Dbn to add crane capacity?

    I would not like to be at sea in that rig if things get sporty! Looks very top heavy.

    That proves it is a flat earther research ship, that is how they prevent it from disappearing over the horizon.

    My money is on a vessel along the lines of the Mighty Servant carrying a Jack-up oil rig.
    Jack-ups are basically barges with legs, and while they can navigate from place to place, it's easier to load them on a vessel like that for a long journey where adverse seas can be expected.
    Cheers,

    Hard to tell by the pic but could be a 4 leg jack up, but most are 3 leg and the 4th tower is the drill derrick being transported on a semi submersible ship

    Here is a 3 leg jack up moored off St Helena Bay at the moment - I could not get another angle clearly showing the 3 legs.

    I work on the oil fields so have dived on the jack ups plenty of times to help line up the drill string or conductor casings go through the bell guides on platforms
