    One last detail on the Far Sitella:


    No ugly tire fenders hanging on rusty chains here. These fixed fenders does the trick.

    Even in our day and age Emergency steering is required, incl. voice powered phone from the bridge:


    Fuel and Lube Oil Separators neatly in a row:


    Pumps and valves are remotely controlled from the ECR and/or from the Bridge:

    Pipes are marked with colour code to indicate type of fluid they carry and the direction of flow.

    Good by to PSV "Far Sitella"for now:

    She is now working in North West Australia on a long term contract.

    Let's take the external rout to the bridge:

    A bit of a labyrinth, with steps up and steps down.

    These two lanterns, Facing to Stbd. had me puzzled:

    The explenation??? There are two on this side and two on the other side, each covering 180 degr. Together they become the prescribed 360 degr. signal lights.

    From here the view down on the covered forecastle deck looks like this:


    There are "numerous" window wipers to ensure free sight under all conditions:

    Another newbuilding, the PSV "Far Sitella", delivered from STX Yard in Vung Tau, Vietnam last month and now working in Australia.

    I have posted some external pictures of this vessel on CVF before, but is does not harm to repeat some here.

    Far Sitella as seen at Jurong West Anchorage, Singapore 22. and 23. Febr. 2013:

    The crane is remotely controlled by WiFi.
    Luckily enough, since it would be difficult to get to the Control platform:




    Sorry, no good pictures from the Engine Room, Thruster Room or other below deck spaces.

    She is equipped with DP-2 System for station keeping:


    And reasonably well laid out Aft controls:


    But the view from here is somewhat restricted by the crane:


    The Fwrd. controls:


    Winch Control panel:


    Portable Joy stick, but not very useful, as the view over the side from this position is not very good:

    It has been a while since the last time details of any ships or boats have been presented on this thread.

    Here is a newbuilt Field Support cum Stand by vessel, the Mermaid Cove.

    I don't have any good exterior pictures, since I just visited at the shipyard, but here is the best I have:

    Not much to say other than "thank you" for all the great photos. I love seeing your detailed photos inside all types of ships.
