                "Rolling in" is right. What's wrong with it, the water doesn't look all that rough!

                        Not so much a General Cargo carrier, but a specialized Forestry product and Paper Carrier.

                        With those large holds and side cranes I wonder if she mostly carries logs. I found some photos of her in ice in Canada and possibly Greenpeace painting her side for destroying Canada's boreal forest.

                      Not logs but sawed timber, plywood, pulp and paper, incl. large rolls of newsprint etc.
                      The reason for the covered cranes and the Car Carrier look, is so that cargo can be handled in all weather and in large volume without being exposed to sea spray on open decks.
                      Logs is usually carried on deck as well as in the holds, like here:





                      The Jaeger Arrow type of vessels are built to handle forestry products, pulp and paper, using the side gates and gantry cranes to load and discharge cargo.
                      Once the crane is inside the vessel, it can travel longitudinally to the various holds it serves. Very specialized and not as exposed to weather as normal open hatch vessels.

                      Handling frames are different for different types of cargo: http://194.72.160.166/equipment.aspx?fid=105

                      Gearbulk's other vessels are usually more like traditional bulk carriers, also with the characteristic large Gantry Cranes, but on open deck:

                            Not only is she a big girl, but judging by the number of containers international trade is picking up too.

                            they stack them up at bridge hight Mark,3 a 4 layers more than this,and then only after the bridge,infront they go lower near the bow.

                          also the ''pride'' is sailing in.
