Spotted these 2 the other day...just thought they may be of some interest. I've got a few more closer up ones if anyone is interested. BY.

Brian,

There is a subsea 7 boat just up river from these two as well now and a carousel in the old swans yard. Don't know what it is being used for.

I pass them everyday going to work and forget to take my camera

Sorry Martin, but the actual "close-ups" didn't work out quite as well as I'd hoped. What I can do is to take segments from the 3mb original and resize them. Should be OK. I was about 1/2 mile away from the ships and it was blowing a hooghly...must remember to take a tripod next time!.
Riggers....2 things. What is a "carousel" when related to ships?
Also, is this the boat you were referring to? Bryan.

The carousel is either on the deck or below and is used to store and then spool off either flexible pipes or umbilicles that are used offshore. Basically a spooling drum that is on its side

Managed to get some better ones this a.m. Still from about 1/2 a mile away though.
This selection is of necessity re-sized to fit the mayhem site. The originals are much larger and available if anyone is interested.

Lovely pictures Brian.  So crisp that you could almost make a model from them.  :} 

Thanks for posting them.

Ah, the wonders of modern lenses and computers! If I'd done this with my old Pentax SLR I'd have to wait an age to get the negs etc. back. Carting around a bag full of lenses. Or working in a darkroom (bathroom) and so on. The youngsters don't know how lucky they are! Thanks. Bryan.

Ah, well spotted Bryan...

A little bird tells me there might be some similar (albeit smaller) at a Model Boat Show near you shortly ...

Do you know if the X bows will be there on Monday (23rd Feb 2012)?  I might nip down and have a look myself.

Regards,
Kim

Well, being the 23rd today, I can assure you that they are both still there,
However.....there's no way you can get close to them except with a long lens from the north bank of the river....they are moored on the south side. Most of that part of the river is now fenced off and inaccesible to the hoi-poloi like you and me. Local knowledge reigns supreme! Hradly worththe trip really.
Unless you'd like another cup of tea. Regards. Bryan.

Not sure if it's a North Sea one or not, but it's a pretty large P&O thing. Bryan.
