PICTURE OF THE DAY

Photographs of offshore support vessels in action in many parts of the world.

 

The Maria G in the decorative surrounding of Valetta harbour taken late last year by Robby Norman. This ship has featured extensively on the internet - I was looking for some details about the owner and what it does - but found nothing. It was said by some to be an anchor-handler but does not seem to have a winch, so who knows. Update. Thanks for the various bits of information received overnight. What-ever it was i think it has become a Seismic support vessel.

I have started a community page, I have no idea how this will go but it seems that by enrolling  people with common interests can email each other - without the public exposure of Facebook.
