'chicken-wire' agar greyship with variable-width chicken-wire

Hartmut Holzwart has produced some examples of an alternate type of greyship. Except for the 'Christmas tree' ships, previous greyships' stable central sections have been made up of continuous stripes of ON and OFF cells. However, central sections with stripes made up of alternate strips of ON and OFF cells (with at least two cells per strip) are also stable, and it is possible to construct greyships that can escort this kind of 'chicken-wire' agar pattern.
