West of Shetland

It’s a record they say. Thirty thousand tonnes of modules, 6 lifts, 5 days, West of Shetland. Blimey, history being made and old allatsea was there to see it. Gawd bless. Tis, true. The weather Gods were very very very kind to us.


Four hundred and twenty millimetre (yes…420mm) slings in the laydown area following the installation of the two 9,000 tonne lower modules.

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.
