Sarff coast cables

Been a bit quiet on the old blog posting malarkey the last few weeks. A mixture of tardiness and location to blame. That and a good helping of laziness from these oldish bones. Allatsea has been warranteeeing on a cable layer off the sarff coast watching array cables being installed at an offshore windfarm. It’s all very challenging when the spring tides are a running with a vengeance, especially when the arrangements as they are, seem to want our lovely bit of floating kit to present itself beam on to the current. Even with 16MW of ooomph available it ain’t a whole lot of good for keeping pale coloured trousers unstained. Advice from the Towers? Wear a robust shade of brown!! That or Pampers!

Should be getting off soon and returning to the bosom of his family and estate. Ahh, he just can’t wait. The delights of a lovely wife, devoted moggies, an aging and dotty mother and the tribulations and worry of dear old nuncy who is looking very frail and weak these days. Bless the old lad. At least, following her indoors persistence at a myriad of closed official doors, we’ve got some assistance from Kent County Council. Folks are going in every day to attend to his ‘every need’, they say. Thankfully. Anyway, digression is in evidence….the main thing wott is being looked forward to is a fridge full of cool beer and rather pompously, Sky Arts. Ooh yes and making some noise with a Yamaha AES620 and a Line 6 Spider Jam.

Talking of windfarms, seems the jack-up Sea Worker has capsized off Denmark on the way to Esbjerg.  That takes a lot of effort, blimey!! No casualties thankfully. A2Sea won’t be very happy about that bit of publicity.
