    • It's been a while since I posted any details of ships or boats here. Here is some pictures from an inspection of a new Anchor Handling Tug "Smit Seraya", delivered from the yard in China in July this year and inspected at the Smit yard here in Singapore in Sept..

      I didn't get any good external pictures, so this one is from Marine Traffic:


      View of the forecastle, with windlass and mooring drum:


      The FRC is placed in a single point davit on Port side:


      A 30 m.t. SWL crane is on the Stbd. side:


      This tugger winch hasn't been equipped with a wire yet:

      • Somebody has misunderstood the way Scrambling nets are supposed to work:


        A weight at the bottom of the net is supposed to keep it tight and below water:


        Here the weight has been replaced with a wooden beam. (Common problem):

        • 1 set Karmoy stoppers and guide pins:

          350 m.t. SWL is a lot for a small vessel like this.

          View of the winch house, superstructure and bridge from the deck:


          ISPS is well taken care of here:


          Quite a colourful collection of safety devices:


          Emergency escape and protected escape route outside the crash barrier is clear of obstruction:

          • Everything is new and shiny:

            This vessel has not worked yet.

            The machinery spaces are quite roomy and still very clean:


            Manifolds are manual and colour coded:


            Emergency steering from the Steering Flat:

            A steering wheel is a rather unusual item to find on new vessels these days. Nice.

            Lots of machinery and equipment, but not too cramped below deck:


            Low headroom some places:

            • Another newbuilding from China which stopped over in Singapore on her way from the building yard to her first assignment, in West Africa.
              The PSV Topaz Armani as seen a Loyang Offshore Base a couple of weeks ago.

              No good external pictures of this one either and cannot find any on the web, but here is specs for the vessel:

              The forecastle deck:


              Unobstructed cargo deck:




              Did I say she was built in Chiana?? So was obviously this crane:

              • Up to the bridge. Fwrd. controls:


                Aft controls:


                Bulk Handling panel:


                DPS-2 Consols:

                • Below deck. The Engine room is in two levels with reasonably good head room and not too cramped:


                  Main Thrusters (Niigata Z-peller) with direct shaft drive:


                  Niigata Main Engines as well:


                  Oily Water Separator:


                  That is it from this vessel. Sister vessel will be here early next month.

                  • A type of vessels that has been seen many times on CVF, but not with much in terms of details and explanation of the complex systems that is incorporated on a modern Live Fish carrier.
                    Here is some details for one of the largest and best equipped such ships: http://www.skipsrevyen.no/ms-ro-fjord/

                    Here she is as seen in Aalesund yesterday:

                    • Water intake, now out of water:


                      Sorry, no onboard pictures.

                      • Multi-purpose Cargo ship, the Jasmine C, 12,914 DWT / 9,530 GT with 2 x 80 m.t. SWL cargo cranes, seen at Jurong Port, Singapore a few days ago:

                        • Stern anchor:


                          Hatches open :

                          Not much of a view from the cabins in front.

                          Notice the offset Bridge? This is because of the cranes are on Stbd. side. (Usually on Port side)

                          • Cargo being loaded, or waiting on trailers:


                            Cargo for Chevron's Gorgon Project, W.Australia, marshaled on the wharf. Waiting to be loaded:


                            Hatch being opened after rain to load cargo at night:




                            Loading a wire reel:

                              • Lashed for the voyage to Fremantle, West Australia:

                                ​Time to go home after a long day of mostly waiting.
