For the last couple of days I’ve been having to sit outside on the stairs and connect to the wifi from the rig parked next to us, it was very slow and would not let me view some sites, so sorry if I haven’t been to yours lately. The thing is, I move rigs right, so when I join the rig it’s going to be moving, this normally means it’s going from one client to another, it’s seem really daft but when one client leaves they take everything with them, this includes the wifi, that’s why I sometimes don’t post, because I can’t. Now you know.
This is the thing I’ll be moving tomorrow morning, is it a boat or a rig? Well it sails out to location under its own steam, then once on location it lowers its legs and lifts itself out of the water, cool ah.
This is the one next to us, the one I’ve been stealing the wifi from. There has always been a problem with jackup’s, the legs get in the way of the cranes. But this is really cool, they have built the crane around the leg. (that’s the large round black thing with red and white on the top) I think that is an awesome bit of engineering, but then I’m strange.
Here is the same smoke stack as the Amsterdam post, but first thing this morning, not a breath of wind, you might have seen it on Instagram if you follow me, @rigmover
