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.

Another dockyard update

I took these photos of work in the Africa Mercy last Thursday whilst the ship was still in the water. Below, the Harbour Generator room with the port side bulkhead removed (click on photo to enlarge). You can now see the ribs of the ship. That whole wall will be removed shortly to allow the old generators out and the new ones in.

Below, Lucas and Mike replacing the bridge controls. New cables have to be laid from the bridge to the engine room for these controls, a big and awkward job in itself involving removing many deckheads and cutting through numerous firewalls.
