PICTURE OF THE DAY 2013

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

You can read the name - Misr Gulf IX. I have just added Misr Gulf Shipping to the Ship Information section, including this photograph contributed by Scott Vardy in 2009. Indeed without the photo I would not have known the company existed. This ship has crossed my path before. It was once the Invincible on hire to Total in Aberdeen when I was master of the Star Polaris also on hire to them, and curiously when it was the Jacob Dieci it was servicing the Ben Reoch out in Israel and I was asked to go and give the master a driving lesson. He had just joined from a bulk carrier.

Photo by Scott Vardy posted here on 20th April 2013.
