My Work

iPhone Friday

Getting off one rig and going straight out to another, wasn’t to bad, travelling all day, including two flights and a two hour train journey, wasn’t to bad, the taxi driver dropping us off at the gate and a half mile walk with bags to the rig, wasn’t to bad. Arriving as the base of the rig and seeing 157 steps to climb, with bags, in the dark, that was bad, I hate steps.

It didn’t look that bad from back here.

Looking from here I was hoping they would send the crane down, at least for our bags.

We managed the steps and after a safety brief made our way to our cabins, this rig is a Flotel, accommodation only, so it’s quiet and clean, even outside. At full capacity it can sleep around 350 people, but as we are moving it to a new location after a re-fit in Copenhagen there is only 52 of us onboard.

Here’s something I don’t get to see every day, a Maersk Supply boat having some work done in dry dock. Cool.

Have a great weekend.

  1. Whoa, that’s a lot of steps, especially having to carry your bags too. It’s great seeing boats in dry dock isn’t it? They look so huge when you can see the whole hull.
