Modern Platform Supply Vessels
« on: April 20, 2013, 02:35:17 PM »

Guys,
I may live to regret this, but is anybody interested in modern PSV's? We get them coming alongside all the time and I can take photo's of them at quite close range - 60-100ft away. I've taken photo's of the 'Bourbon Liberty' recently, well about 60 actually and they may be of use to show the detail for anyone interested in building a model. The downsides are: I can't always get the 'other' side of the vessel, nor can I get the plans. Although in the Bourbon Liberty case the company website does have a basic schematic.
We do get some junk alongside but occasionally some nice vessels; yesterday an X-bow "CBO Copacobana".

Glyn,

Always interested in these photos, they are great documentation and difficult to find. Thanks for posting, and if you have more, post away!

Thanks,
Pete

I think its worth while posting any thing you can get a good photo of, some one will appreciate that little bit of detail they may not get when a vessel is alongside.  Your photo angle is from view that the every day person doesn't see, and even if modelling a similar vessel we can get a glimpse of reality. Keep up the good work.

Superb Photos. As others have said, from an angle and range some mere mortals, will never get. Thank You.

After this I'll post another vessel for variety  O0
Oh, yes the last photo shows an orange tube on a bit of string which almost all PSV's have these days.

Fire/emergency plan is in the Red tube, what is the Orange tube?

Here are some more photos. The pictures of the natural vent and hose to Weco connection are from our own vessel as I couldn't get a clear photo of the one on board the PSV; but they are the same.

Ixion,
You are quite correct in red tubes holding fire plans for the emergency services, but they would have a more permanent position and be clearly identified. In this case the red tube hanging on the door is attached to the platform crane in order to transfer documentation, manifests, that requires signatures. Similarly the orange tube is attached to a rope that usually goes up to the bridge deck handrail. That way the paperwork can be passed up to the bridge for the Master to sign then passed back without all that strenuous stair climbing. :-)

I am loving these, thanks so much for taking the time to share. I think these vessels would make a great modelling project for someone with the relevant skills so that kinda rules me out  :embarrassed:

Andy,
Thanks for the words of praise. Now that I know people are interested i will continue posting photos.
Meanwhile does anyone have any comments? Would you like to see more general vessel pictures or detail photos? I have a sneeky feeling you're all going to say 'both'!  %)
So here are a few more and the last one could raise a few smiles.

Yes, keep them pictures coming.  You never did say why you can't see the port sides.
