Some pictures from the last few days.
A big boat with a big module on it, all the way from Korea, not getting lost and turning up on time, intact, in the right place after a six week voyage…….without moaning. Not quite sure what nationality the crew were, possibly Russians? Highly able folk with a penchant for enthusiastic parties involving large quantities of vodka, and, shooting folks wott complain.
Another big boat with some more stuff from Korea on deck. In the foreground a little boat. Little but very able. A crewboat no less, and happily working 50 miles west of Shetland. Offshore windfarm builders please note, this crewboat operates on a 24 hour basis, crew living on board. No moans or hassles, just great, continuous, reliable, service….round the clock, seamlessly. The company? Seazip!! Top dollar. Turbine Transfers and Guard Line…up your game!
Baby babba escort tug Boa Balder, doing a grand job ‘holding off and pushing on’.
A 5.2m diameter Yokohama, friend of the heavy handed and clumsy and a wonderfully effective fender to boot.
Dynamically positioned hotel for 500 offshore workers, a floatel. Able to stay on station with an Hs of 7.5m, they say. Rather them than me to be frank.
A BP maritime asset from a time long before the North Sea oil industry
