I am thinking seabed mining looking at that pipe. Lets say for diamonds - I am just using the synchronicity of the last guess of 'Solitaire'

Maybe it's one of De Beers five ships? For horizontal marine mining they have a remarkable seabed crawler, which uses flexible hoses along the ocean floor, to bring diamond bearing gravels to the surface.

Norseman has it,  the picture shows part of the 240 ton remote controlled dredging crawler, used by the De Beers diamond mining ship Peace in Africa. More info here  http://www.theartofdredging.com/peaceinafrica.htm

Yes Ken. 500 internal server when on site and I think 404 when trying to get on site. Lots today but I just leave it for a while and come back. I have been sanding black walnut - modelling instead of Mayheming for a change.  O0  %%

Dear All,
 
Right. This is not easy to most - maybe. It is pertinent to marine, and I will be pleased to give clues as/when requested since it would not be right to let it go on too long (the start principal of Name the Flag, and I am sure it is appreciated on here).

Dear Grendel,
 
Sorry no :-)
 
Whilst the item to hand is historically interesting - and it may go on for a bit - I take the liberty of posting a parallel item... which will prove just as interesting... and difficult possibly? - depending however on how deep knowledge of maritime 'things' might go.
 
So, what might this be?
 
Regards, Bernard

Would it perchance be a very early gas turbine by the esteemed Mr J Barber of the late 1700's?

Dear Nick & All,
 
Nick has #162 100% correct. Very well done indeed! (Why didn't I think you would get it that quick with your background!lol! ;) ).
 
Nick, let's do an experiment if we may (it is your Topic I know so I ask of course). I somehow think Mayhem members might be able to take on two things at the same time 8) :}  So, could you put up another item please and we will see where we go? If it all goes wrong things can be brought back in balance of course, but it's worth a try just to see what happens :-)  ( ok2 ). I will keep an eye on answers, so forget about that angle.
 
Regards, Bernard

I have a keen interest in the works of the early engineers, Mr Barber, Captain Savery, the esteemed Mr Newcomen et al. I shall post an item later, first I have a hangover to sleep off :-) :-) :-)
