                No pictures from the Pax saloon or Crew Quarters, since I was there to check on her ability to actually perform towage operations, but here is a picture from the sister ship, the FOS Polaris taken at an earlier visit:

                      I find it very interesting to follow you at your walkarounds on board different ships. Quite fun to see how differently ships can look like below deck.

                        Not much to say other than "thank you" for all the great photos. I love seeing your detailed photos inside all types of ships.

                          It has been a while since the last time details of any ships or boats have been presented on this thread.

                          Here is a newbuilt Field Support cum Stand by vessel, the Mermaid Cove.

                          I don't have any good exterior pictures, since I just visited at the shipyard, but here is the best I have:

                              She is equipped with DP-2 System for station keeping:


                              And reasonably well laid out Aft controls:


                              But the view from here is somewhat restricted by the crane:


                              The Fwrd. controls:


                              Winch Control panel:


                              Portable Joy stick, but not very useful, as the view over the side from this position is not very good:

                                The crane is remotely controlled by WiFi.
                                Luckily enough, since it would be difficult to get to the Control platform:




                                Sorry, no good pictures from the Engine Room, Thruster Room or other below deck spaces.
