Tiger class cruiser refuelling from Tidespring. Je suis a bateau de Tidespring chap.
Two full length trips on OLNA as 3rd and 2nd mate. You can see mu cabin from here.
A fine ship, Sir Bedivere. Appalling sea keeping qualities, noisy engines and lots of pongos about but a happy 6 month trip in 1977-78.
Tidereach, ancient old thing but gloriously, no flight deck so life continued at a gentle pace. Summer of 1977 spent here.
All at sea on UR101, cable laying Thanet OWF 2009
Connection up an 800 tonne lift on an SSCV, in the scheme of things, a very ‘ickle’ lift.
Loading around 20km of 12″ pipe within 16″ onto Apache 2.
The view from behind….so to speak.
Sticking the top bit (that’s the technical name we give these things) onto the foundation. Perfect weather needed.
A lumpy transfer from crew boat to Atwood Hunter, Israel 2009.
Nothing to do with boats, bro allatsea, Greenfields Sturry, Canterbury, Beretta 682E Sporting with 32″ barrels and multichokes.
