Wooo! :D (So long as it's not a medical transfer, that is.) Hope Kato's not crewing on here...
You live in the ocean? :)
Not quite living in the Ocean. I'm working for the British Antarctic Survey. For two weeks I'm on-board the RRS James Clark Ross, getting a handle on the ship's computer systems.
The coastguards were just carrying out an exercise, it seems. They showed up, dropped this fellow off on a wire and then picked him up again.
We did have the RNLI turn up the other day, for a medical transfer, but that was because one of the technicians cut his finger quite badly. Not too badly.
We're somewhere between the Inner and Outer Hebrides right now and frankly, I'm stunned that I can get signal on my phone.
I was rather surprised that I could get a signal when I was on the ferry out to Lewis, but I suppose there's not a lot to obstruct the signal - a transmitter near the coast, and you're sorted, surely?
So it would appear! Impressive stuff, bon voyage Tullis!
It's great when they choose the ship for a training exercise, isn't it? They do so love the research vessels for that. :D
Must have been fun to watch!
BTW, I really love the curvy rotor effect in the top shot.
Yes, I did that specially. :-)
(P) what's this?
