Seven in the morning here in Sunny Gourock, OK, perhaps not that sunny but it looks lovely from the window of my mates flat
and I can see the Svitzer Milford off Kilcreggan. She’s just turned around and is sitting there with an air of expectancy as if she’s awaiting work.
It was a lovely day yesterday, though I didn’t see a great deal of it, buried as I was amongst the valves, pipes and schematics of the good ship Hallaig.
That’ll be part of the ‘Tyco Aqua Mist’ system http://www.tycofis.co.uk/products/WaterMist/marine-aquamist-overview on the left. It’s kind of like a sprinkler system but using fine droplets under pressure rather than just a spray. This has the great advantage of suppressing the fire quickly, cooling it rapidly and using a lot less water. There’s also a nitrogen charged bank of cylinder that can provide the pressure in case of pump or power failure. on the right are the two fresh water pumps and pressure cylinders for the fresh water system, behind them on the bulkhead a charcoal and UV filter, who knows, perhaps the Hallaig may now see the return of the much missed and very profitable drinks vending machine ??? The loss of the Striven’s, which was a result of lunatic EU regulations was a sad blow to customers and crew alike.
Lovely pillar drill, proper vice, grinder and decent work bench
Sewage treatment plant.
Watertight door between the two engine rooms and on the right one of the six? Novec cylinders http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novec_1230 a far more environmentally safe and efficient medium for fire fire suppression medium than CO2 or Halon.
Anyway, that’s it, I’m off to Ferguson’s
