Think this is the first vessel I've seen with an offset telescopic wheelhouse column.

Strange that I never noticed that before, presumably goes back to when she was built, here she is as FORZA in the Kiel Canal 08/05/2011
You'd think that the starboard side would need some support!

No, never seen one like that before either. It projects forward as well and looks like its "Left Hand Drive".
