    Re: Details of ships and boats

    Another newbuilding, the PSV "Far Sitella", delivered from STX Yard in Vung Tau, Vietnam last month and now working in Australia.

    I have posted some external pictures of this vessel on CVF before, but is does not harm to repeat some here.

    Far Sitella as seen at Jurong West Anchorage, Singapore 22. and 23. Febr. 2013:

          Let's take the external rout to the bridge:

          A bit of a labyrinth, with steps up and steps down.

          These two lanterns, Facing to Stbd. had me puzzled:

          The explenation??? There are two on this side and two on the other side, each covering 180 degr. Together they become the prescribed 360 degr. signal lights.

          From here the view down on the covered forecastle deck looks like this:


          There are "numerous" window wipers to ensure free sight under all conditions:

                The windlasses are controlled from this "box":

                    Even in our day and age Emergency steering is required, incl. voice powered phone from the bridge:


                    Fuel and Lube Oil Separators neatly in a row:


                    Pumps and valves are remotely controlled from the ECR and/or from the Bridge:

                    Pipes are marked with colour code to indicate type of fluid they carry and the direction of flow.

                    Good by to PSV "Far Sitella"for now:

                    She is now working in North West Australia on a long term contract.

                      One last detail on the Far Sitella:


                      No ugly tire fenders hanging on rusty chains here. These fixed fenders does the trick.

                        thanks Ombugge for showing us the parts we never wil see.
                        with al those computer screens to look at ,they hardly have the time to look out the windows,but that again on the screens they will see that anorther vessel is coming from the right.

                        what is a dacon scoop?
                        best regards Thijs

                          Thank you very much for the report. Even this time I learned some stuff from your text and pictures, "voice powered phone" to take one example.

                          The "Viking Fighter", spotted by sterkoder yesterday must be a sister ship? http://www.captainsvoyage-forum.com/...893#post104893

                                Will someone add a few more weeks to the year (without shortening one's lifespan!) so that I have time to study things? I have merely flicked through this thread because I'm trying to find one I was looking at last night and where I have a question to ask. But I'll say this - it's good to be able to see on board these ships and get some idea of what makes them tick. I'll try to get back so as to enjoy these comprehensive photos. Many thanks, Ombugge, they're much appreciated.
