This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

More emergency power


International maritime regulations are very specific about the amount of emergency power a ship must have, which is why yesterday we took delivery of a second emergency generator to power water pumps for fire hoses and sprinkler systems throughout the ship. The preparation and instalation of this generator and pump system is mostly what myself and many other colleagues have been working on in recent months - it involves miles of cabling and piping, tons of steel, and acres of additional fire-roof insulation.
