Enhanced energy

The other day, I noticed this strange vessel on the Live Ships Map, the fascinating online map showing current ship positions and statuses:


Clicking on that vessel to see its details, I found:

What kind of vessel could this be? Flying the Liberian flag (a “flag of convenience“), the thing is averaging 102 knots. That’s about 117 mph, an astonishing speed at sea, still more so in the shallow, busy, turbulent confines of the Humber Estuary. What manner of vessel was this?

Whatever it is, it is still doing 102 knots today.

Fortunately, the website also provided a photo of Energy Enhancer:

Perhaps someone should contact the Guinness Book of World Records.
