      Lots of boats at the anchorage and idle:






      A jack-up rig is further out:

      Looks like he is freeing legs. (Listed quite a bit earlier)

      Sea Sovereign is steam towards his favorite anchor position:


      I was on board the AHT Lewek Kea, but did not manage to take any picture of that one.

        Shell Prelude.

        From the BBC: "World's biggest 'ship' takes to water"

        http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-25213850

        We learn that "when fully built, Shell's Prelude will weigh over 600,000 tonnes." That's nearly 3 x Oasis/Allure of The Seas.

        Unfortunately, the article is very short and doesn't tell us much more. Maybe someone knows which shipyard is building this beast?

        The video is a time-lapse of the launch and manoeuvring by tugs - I can count 8 of them.

                    above the story about the ''smit lloyd 47'',the former ''injynn captain'',but it says that she is laid up since 2010 and probally will go soon to the scrapers,
                    together with the ''swiber trader''.

                    best regards Thijs

                      That is true, she have been idle for a long time and without much maintenance. It is unlikely she will be back in service again.
                      I don't know why she is still with us, unless it is nostalgia by the Owner??

                      The name is Glenn Columbus. One of the original UT 704s, built in Papenburg for Will. Wilhemsen as Thender Senior.
                      The history; 85 MAERSK SENIOR - 85 TENDER SENIOR - 86 FAR SOUTH - 88 RED ROBIN - 95 RED HAWK - 98 SEABULK HAWK
                      She was sold to Glenn Defense Marine Group in 2008. I have seen her in the gray Navy colour and idle at their yard for a few years now.

                      Glenn also own another veteran AHTS, the Glenn Freedom, built as Maersk Topper at Ulstein Hatlo in 1974.

                      What will happen to the Glenn Marine group and their assets now is a bit up in the air, since the boss was tricked into going to the US and got arrested for corruption there: http://rt.com/usa/navy-bribery-military-contractor-515/

                    Unmistakeable a UT704 there yes. Happen to know her name...?

                    In Kristiansund today we have SIEM Garnet, MAERSK LASER and ISLAND WELLSERVER on a line alongside Storkaia








                    We also have NORTHERN COMMANDER and SJOBORG (inner)

                      In connection with the ISLAND WELLSERVER picture, let me give you a link to a video made by the captain and crew on board, based on the music by the Ylvis brothers and their What does the Fox say?

                        Jolly Christmas! Specially like the bit with the angel wings!

                      Very nice lineup along Storkaia you had yesterday, Sterkoder (no, I couldn’t decide between #1537/1 or 2 either!), and I much appreciate the details revealed in the extra viewpoint of Siem Garnet too.. You know, I surely must have said it before, but I was just thinking how great it is that there are always interesting viewpoints of ships moored in Kristiansund compared with Leith where often ships are “hidden away” in the inaccessible parts of the port. Love your harbour-centred city – like “theatre in the round” for shipspotters!
