      Love the fact that our collection of these macho vessels grow steadily.

      I have no idea what it is, but I'm starting to like these kind of vessels more and more each time I see one.

      If anyone else around the world spot any oil-/ supply-/ AH vessels around their area, please share them here.

      Burbon Orca and Island Vanguard are now among my favourites.

        One particular vessel visited Kristiansund again today. It was "Skandi Bergen" and used to be blue.
        Today she sailed into Sterkoder Ship yard bright red and with a new helicopter deck over the bow.
        I didn't get to take pictures, because I started to work at 0800 AM this morning and got off at 0800 PM.

        I've also heared rumers that the coming summer could be a good one for me when it comes to taking pictures of offshore vessels.

        I've heared that all new ships will sail directly from the ship yards at Sunnmøre to Kristiansund to get on board all their wires and chains, as a local company got a huge contract to equip new ships with such equipment.

            Wider world

            Nice to see Offshore vessels of the world on this site, not only Cruisers and Liners. So far it appears that Ulsteinvik and Kr.sund N. is the world, so I thought I'll post a few from the other side of the world as well.


            10 Offshore vessel moored alongside each other at Loyang Offshore Base, S'pore


            A newbuilt AHTS of 5000 Bhp. China built


            Newbuilt Salvage Tug Salviscount


            Shearleg crane barge Asian Hercules II, 32000 t. SWL leaving Singapore under tow by Smit Lumut(Two jobs in China)


            Marine 305, typical J/U Rig working over a platform in Yadana Field, Burma (Now Pride Hawaii)


            Top modern MODU leaving Jurong Shipyard for sea trails and off to GOM.

                  Also have in mind that the link to a picture will be broken if you delete the picture from Photobucket.
                  That means; it will not only be deleted from Photobucket, but also all places on the internet you have used that picture....

                  (Only ment as a tips if anyone have plans to have a spring cleanup in their Photobucket albums).

                    That seems to be correct what pilotdane writes. The IMG tag you should use is for the picture itself, the so called IMG code. Please let us know if you need any more help.

                    This is the code I use... (from my album):

                    I was just about to do that a while ago.... suddenly, I realized it was not such a good idea.

                          Energy Searcher OPL S'pore 02.04.2009

                          Here is a real old lady, built as M.S."Lappland" at Eriksberg in 1959 as a Ore Carrier, converted to Drillship in Hong Kong in 1982 and still going strong.
                          I was the Captain on her for a few months back in 1997. The last Owners had gone bust and a French company had bought her. We worked for UNOCAL in Thailand.

                          Now belonging to Northern Offshore (John Frederiksen)

                          Specifications%20-%20Energy%20Searcher%20Aug%202008.pdf

                          I took these pictures OPL S'pore a few days ago, where she is waiting on new assignment.













                          I will check if I have any "action pictures" from my last visit to the Searcher, while working for Talisman off Malaysia in 2006.

                            How was the view from the bridge of Energy Searcher? It looks like the drill rig completely blocks the forward view.

                              Now that is an amazing looking vessel... nothing like anything I have ever seen at sea.

                              I find it very interesting studying such vessels though.

                                As you can imagine, not too good. I used to insist on having a look-out on each bridge wing when we were sailing, even in open sea, but that was not popular with the Rig Superintendent. He wanted all hands to WORK.

                                She has a radar scanner and CCTV camera pointing fwrd. but that does not do much in a court of law. That became clear to most after she had a collision in the Singapore Starit sometime in 2004 or 2005.
