Just realised - the stern of that little ship of yours has some RIB type features!!!

Bulbous curved deck edges for extra buoyency/stability - what a back end!!!

Some serious power as well - 2000hp - not that much? That's one of the thrusters!!!

Single jet it would be easier with two

The thrusters are powerful and thats one of the interesting (but not amusing) points of the job the Vessel has DP (dynamic positioning) so the thrusters autonatically kick in when the ship moves slightly out of position, which is usually when I am coming alongside.........

re rough day to be honest if the wind is over 30 knots and the wave height over 4 metres then we don't dive if it picks up to that after we have gone out then the journey back is interesting


engine room is fantastic I'll have a chat to the chief engineer and ask if I can take some Photos,,,,,,,I'd be happy to eat my dinner of the engine room floor
