Some images from yesterday.
Not just one, but two sections of pipe fell to the bottom of this tank.
This leads to the hottest new shipboard craze…
Forget planking! We’ve gone beyond that to…tanking!
Suction line with check valve and strainer in situ in tank:
Second section of pipe recovered and passed up to the weather deck through the tank hatch:
Examining patching (and repatching) done in Tank 5 (starboard):
Oops. It seems the patching has failed.
Looking up again. The only way in and out of the tank:
Finally, a manufacturer’s mark spotted on a steel frame in the tank.:
The steel was added when the ship was converted into a tank ship.
