    Details of ships and boats

    We have threads for many different types of vessels and one for any kind of vessel -Ship Spotters and Maritime Image Thread- which was meant for single images of ships, boats and anything Maritime.

    Not to clutter up these threads I'll create one for detailed picture of vessels and their machinery, equipment and accommodations for those who like that sort of things.

    Starting with a modern Offshore Construction Support Vessel, the Normand Clough. (She has been featured here before, in posts 390 and 394)

    Here she is as seen in Chiwan, China two weeks ago:




    One of two ROVs permanently carried on board:

    This little boat carries passengers and goods to the islands in Ellingsoyfjorden, some of which still have permanent inhabitants: http://www.mbtrio.no/
    Here she is at her normal mooring in Norvasundet:


    At the islands she just put her bow against the wharf:


    While at the this place boarding is over the side:


    The contraption seen on top of the wheelhouse looked intriguing, so I had to have a closer look.
    It is actually intended used to recover people from the water. Here is the harness stored against the deckhouse:


    A look into the wheelhouse:

    It's been a while since there have been any posting here, but this vessel deserves a bit more details than normal.
    "Øystrand" is one of the large new and sophisticated Live Fish Carriers that has been delivered the last few months:

    Here she is arriving in Aalesund recently:


    Together with Cruise ship Monarch at Stornespiren:

    Even so, the people inside survived without injury. (See at 0:40)

    Ever wondered what it is like inside a lifeboat??
    Fret no more, have a look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhNcovVR-pg

    What about when there are 150 people on board?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2TQxUZaBz4
    Now multiply that with 2 and add 70 and you get the number of people that is supposed to go in each of the lifeboats on the Oasis-class Cruise ships.

    Here is a better way of escaping from a sinking or burning ship, rig, platform, or a FPSO, like here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96S-JYnV1eo
    PS> This is a function test, not a drill.

    As seen from inside the lifeboat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFk0zW_bRfc
