Solitaire off Largs
« on: March 21, 2012, 06:02:37 PM »

The world's largest undersea pipelaying ship. Solitaire, is off Largs at present. Saw it this pm on our way to/from the garden centre (ugh). I tried to take a photo of it on my phone but I doubt it will come out - easier to use a ship tracker and look her up on the web!

There are also a couple of interesting youtube bits on how the pipe sections are loaded, welded and pushed out the back!
