      It appears so!! Unfortunately the American version. The true Italian thin-crust pizza is rarely found, except in Italy and at my favourit pub here in Singapore. (I'll take a picture the next time I order one)

        On with the task at hand, details from the good ship Normand Clough.
        But before we get below deck, a few more pictures of the work deck.

        Here is a view of the deck from the bridge:

        But this view will constantly change as equipment is installed and remove, depending on the tasks to be carried out at any time.
        What is seen here is semi-permanently installed Dive spread and some Well intervention equipment over the moon pool.

        Here is the near empty deck as it looked in April, 2010, just after she arrived from GOM :

          Well intervention equipment being installed on deck:




          The Moon Pool was also under modification at that time:


          Wooden deck cladding being removed to facilitate installation of equipment:


          But stowage along the escape route in the Cargo Rail is NOT acceptable:

              Let us start the trip down from the bridge to below deck.
              The Muster Deck is at Level 7:


              From there it is a bit of a climb to get to deck 6: (At least on Port side)


              The next level is almost blocked by parts of the Diving Spread:


              This is what it looked like before the Diving Spread was installed:

                Finally we get below deck.
                First to a large Store Room at Tween Deck Level:

                This is as it looked in April, 2010. Now filled with Dive Gas Cylinders.

                Access between compartments below deck is by watertight doors:

                Hydraulically operated. (Small handle by pump, large handle manually)
                Status of doors opened/closed are displayed on the Bridge and in the Engine Control Room.

                  This vessel has Diesel/Electric Propulsion, hence there are no Main Engine(s), only Generators.
                  5 x Cat 3516TA, 2100 kW each


                  On my last visit there were a problem with exhaust leak:

                  Awaiting spare parts and a maintenance period to effectuate repairs.

                  + 1 x Cat 3508B, 1,700 kW:

                  There is also an Emergency Generator of 160 kW (No pics)

                    Re: Details of ships and boats

                    Power distribution is via the Main Switchboard:

                    Stepped down to 440V and 220V / 60 Hz for domestic consumption.

                    690V main power for propulsion is distributed via Variable Frequency Controls situated in the Thruster Rooms:
