    I did post some still pictures from the attempted salvage of the bow section of MOL Comfort before (Post # 29).
    Here is a video shot from the salvage vessel Capricorn:

    OK, OK, I'm not really complaining about age, it's just something you have to adjust to.
    This kind of high pressure jobs, even if everybody looks relaxed, is just not for me any more.
    Been there, done that. Now younger people can take over. I'll do the simple stuff.

    By the way, here is one more lifting operation, this time in the GOM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0J42JVfJFo

    All of this stuff is amazing to watch, all seems so calm and controlled. But to think of all the calculations involved in making such operations possible, that must be the real clever stuff.

    Noticed that the Riggers are all Ibans from Sarawak, East Malaysia??
    They are regarded as the best in the world for this kind of work. All major Offshore Construction Contractors are using Ibans where possible.
    They are hard working and doesn't complain for every little thing.

    A popular way of laying pipelines in very deep water is by Coiled or Spooled pipelaying from very large and sophisticated vessels.

    Here is one of the largest and most advanced yet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIU_mWhRguA

    The process of preparing pipelines at the Spooling Base at Vigra, Norway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XneFt2rvfgE

    Spooling pipe onto the reel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Baj5o88L2A
    Not at Vigra.

    Another large pipelaying vessel, including a short cut of pipe being laid from the spool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CukfISn8uOM

    More tutorials.
    Pipelaying by the traditional S-lay method and all manual welding: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02qzEHzR6wI
    The days when all Offshore Pipe welders came from Oklahoma is long gone.

    Deep water pipelaying by the J-lay method: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Phqum0y1nhs
    This is the system on board Saipem 7000, with auto welding.

    Here a boring video showing the welding process, using all automated gas welding system: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcRYWKLbknQ
    Also on the Saipem 7000. (Please ignore the stupid acting of the Iban riggers on break)

    Spool piece installation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z98oPpTiIu0
    It is very quick and easy in animation

    More Anchor handling.
    This time the modern way, using two cranes with manipulators running on the cargo rails: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIk6o...s_digest-vrecs
    Minimal man handling for minimal risk:

    A good illustration of Anchor Handling operation in good weather.
    This is the famous, but now wrecked, AHT Typhoon handling anchors for McDermott's Crane barge "CB 30": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqrKZTQOkPQ

    Aside from a tribute to the Typhoon it is a good illustration of how anchor handling is done the traditional way, using pennants and suitcase buoys, not chaser.

    She sunk in Bonny River, Nigeria on 05. Nov. 2013. Here is a link to the Wrecksite page about the tug Gudri: http://www.wrecksite.eu/wreck.aspx?209812

    Here is a video taken inside the longitudinal passage way of one of here sister ships: http://gcaptain.com/watch-containers...Captain.com%29

    Large ships are designed to flex, but within limits.

    Here is a typical example of Coonas* inginuity and a lesson on how NOT to do tandem towage: http://gcaptain.com/tandem-town-goes...Captain.com%29

    Tandem = two vessels in line, one by one.
