A new diving ship
« on: June 02, 2008, 05:46:23 PM »

And here was me thinking that "Bibby" (what an odd name) had gone years ago. I would love to see her in profile. A handsome looking vessel.

Bryan,

Not sure that this "Bibby" is the same "Bibby" as out of Liverpool which was a commodity trader. Seems a long way from buying foodstuffs to running a diving business. But I think they did have shipping interests, so maybe your right.

Hi there,

I just found over 70 photos of the dive system and control stations plus some pictures of her engines.  It appears the company i work for supplied her with alot of the diving equipment on board.

also have loads of photos of the dive system and control stations inside the bibby saphire.  pretty impressive stuff inside!
