Don't worry! She's not breaking up. She was built to do that!
the Connector was built to ride waves, in that fashion as drawn in the picture. Unfortunately there are no pictures (that I know of, I looked on Google)

it was decided that she was bad in the ocean, so the Connector was scrapped..right after her Sea Trials

Forgot to mention, she was built in 3 modules, like above

Had to look at the calendar, and make certain this wasn't April 1st before replying. Was this vessel actually built? I would love to look over the plans, but suspect (if this is in fact real, and not a prank) the flexibility was less-radical than depicted in the drawing. One wonders, if one section sank was there a quick-disconnect mechanism to save the other two? Thanks for sharing, Cam.

Happy to share, Bo!
Unfortunately there is little info on her. I was told about this ship, so I have no idea either. The only link I was able to find on Google was this

It'd be fun to search for more info about this mysterious ship!
