So Much for a Peaceful Day on the Ship

After a long and busy week at work, I was looking forward to spending some quiet time on the ship doing simple tasks.

When I arrived at the ship, I came upon this:

wonky gangway

So much for the quiet time.

Due to the recent occurrences on board the ship and on the pier, caution is turning into a bit of paranoia. My first thought was that someone had been up to no good. Upon closer inspection of the area, I found that the spring line running aft from amidships was hanging down in the water. Just great. I wondered if someone had taken it off the bollard and let it slip down. 😦

At least that explained the state of the gangway and platform. The ship herself pushed them, since she was moving further aft than usual.

After making some phone calls, I went aboard. Unfortunately, there were signs that an unauthorized person had been on board again. 😦

More dead things on deck as well:

I have not found the rest. Yet.

With help, the spring line situation was taken care of for the time being. Work needs to be done to replace it. It was a relief to see that the chain the line was attached to had, in fact, failed.

BIG, BIG MAHALO to Captain Ed Enos!
