Korean update

Oh blog readers, have I deserted you?
Well yes and no.
This blog is the ‘backup’ one and I’ve been very lazy in updating it each time I make an entry on the main blog.
I will rectify this, but in the meantime, be advised that that blog can be found at
Currently in the town of Ulsan on the Southeastern corner of Korea. It’s the country’s 7th largest city by population size  but probably the largest by shipbuilding!! The Hyundai yards (which dominate much of the city) put, on average, a large ocean going ship into the water at least once a week. Hmmmm. I’f you’re a ship geek, that’s a figure that’ll get your juices flowing. Maybe not flowing but it’s a statistic that’s pretty damned impressive by anyone’s standards.
I’m here to warrant the sailaway of the FPSO AKPO, it’s dure to sail in a round 8 days and they’re still building it. Watch this space.

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
