If anyone knows what it is, say it here, please.

Chris, Moments before I read your reply to paul.happyhiker's question, I thought exactly the same. Does that prove the old saying "great minds think alike" ...... or is it "fools seldom differ".(Jester)

Looks like a gash chute , it is just below an open port. Probably just finished dumping the gash into a lighter and in an hurry to get underway.

With bridge windows all the way to the deck, what does the OOW lean on?
Do they have very short deck officers?
There are no bridge wings to talk to the R/O on, but I guess there is no R/O nowadays.
I don't even want to know how you get from the bridge to the monkey island!

The whole world has gone mad !

More to the point how does one "scratch an itch?!" without being in full view!

The chute is a type of escape slide into the liferafts that slows the rate of descent by means of a type of 'zig-zag' effect within the escape tube. There was someone killed in a test of one of these contraptions not so long ago when she got twisted up in the chute.

Nice photo. What is the blue object hanging from the side of her just behind the lifeboats?"

A condom for a passing blue whale?

As Orbitaman has already said, they are evacuation chutes for a MES. They must have been doing an annuel test with it. (If you look closely, you'll see there are actually two chutes). The only bits missing are the four large liferafts that are usually fitted to the bottom of them.
