    Anybody's General photo thread.

    We cannot have a separate thread for EVERYTHING and everybody, therefore I am starting one for ANYTHING and anybody.

    I'll open it by posting a few pictures that doesn't have a specific thread to go to and doesn't necessarily show anything specific.

    You may make up your own mind about what you see here:


    Or here:


    Or this one that was taken by mistake:

    When inspecting the Engine Room of a ship I slipped and accidently pressed the camera button.

    Let us hear what you make it out to be, or what your imagination see here.

    Hahahahaha...., this should be a funny thread

    Nr. 1: When I first saw it, I thought of Mother Earth
    Nr. 2: Landing facilities for many small helicopters
    Nr. 3: -"This is no drill! This is NO DRILL!!!"

        Hmmmm... does this comment mean we should merge all threads together as just a forum with one single thread?

          Well, #1.1 ????????
          #1.2 is this a blown-up satellite picture? There seem to be faint redish reflections at each side of a series of lines, but apart from Sterkoder's mention of multiple helipads, I'm puzzled.
          #1.3 When you posted this elsewhere I thought it was on board ship or in a cradle hanging at the side somehow.
          #3.1 ???????? Now how would I know?

            NO, that is not at all what is implied -or indeed said - in my first post.

            Similar idea to the Chit-Chat Zone. A thread where anybody can throw in any picture which doesn't fit any existing thread, or doesn't have a specific subject. (somewhat like the once I have posted above)

            Simply put them here. Save us from having a lot of "single" postings and "dead" threads.

              Nobody have any comments to this contraption???
              I'll wait another day or two before reviling what it is, or rather what it does, to see if somebody come up with some creative ideas.

                Wow, OK let me hazard a few guesses. First lot first -

                1. Seems like a hull plating with rust patches soon to blister out
                2. A deckhands super neat job at touching up paint damages ?
                3. Agree with Sterkoder here - Has to be "This is not a drill, this is not a drill" !

                The next one -

                - Someones idea of a FiFi monitor ?
                - Foam monitor ?

                  Well, the contraption at #7:
                  As I said before - how would I know
                  But it has a dial so it's measuring something, feet - so it stands possibly on the seabed while it's measuring, is that an inlet pipe for measuring what? Salinity or something? Or is the pipe an outlet?
                  Not knowing what a FiFi monitor is I've just Googled it, and learnt a bit more. And I back Plimsollmark.

                        Re: Anybody's General photo thread.

                        That blue thingy in post #3 at first remind me of that doe-gun in one of the Wallace & Grommit movies...., but as there are an air hose there and a connection for that air hose on the blue thing, as it also have a manometer to measure pressure, I belive it might be some sort of an air pressure gun to fire a life-line or any other rope over a distance...??

                          Spot on. It is a heaving line throwing device.
                          Here is a picture of the line and the "projectile" used to fire it across, in this case, from the Rig to the Towing Vessel:

                          The messenger rope following the heaving line is seen in the first picture. The heavy Bridle is finally lowered and heaved on deck for connection to the Towing vessel's Towline. Very efficient.

                          A common tool on Japanese ships and, in this case, a Japanese Rig, the Hakuryu V.

                            No, I don't get how this connects up with the tool. Is that the air hose Sterkoder mentioned - the one with the connection end, hanging over the rail in the first picture? And is the messenger rope the rope on the rail? Is it knotted on to the heaving line? Is that the bridle on the floor in the above picture? Where is the projectile inserted, is that a cap just below the dial which removes so as to insert the projectile? Please!
