    My last two weeks in Pics

    As I posted two weeks ago I was away in on a boat to grapple for a wire then move a rig, took my camera so here are some snaps. Might interest some, probably wont interest alot.

    My view for a while



    Someone elses job



    We had some big rollers come through, shaking the entire bridge



    The rig we were moving with another Anchor Handler



    MMMM Windy, 5m seas are alot on a boat that rolls like a swiss cheese



    The North Sea by night

    Nah thats for poofs.

    If its REALLY bad the guy at the back holds onto his mate via the lifejacket. Whats worse is that stern roller spins when it has weight on it.

    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Cool pics. Doesn't look like a 5m swell, but you can never tell from photos.

    Where's that steel cable coming from that the guys have the heaving line attached to? You got a derrik that swings out over the stern? Or are you stern side facing the rig and it's the rig's derrik?

    Thats not 5m, we wouldnt be rig moving in that. The cut off is 3.5m.

    The is just a messager line they pass down, its connected to the rigs towing bridle which is 2 lenghts of chain connected to the front of the pontoons.

    The towing wire you see lying on the deck is connected to the tow bridle and off you go.
