Bottom right, just below the lowest branch you can see the nose of the snow leopard seal

Perhaps Ireland were still drunk when they played Canada ? It was a tour after all


Can name all in that Irish lineup except the two between Stringer and Horgan. Who are they? One is looking at his toes/cock.

Only easier if towed... otherwise I'd prefer the alternative every day...

The seismic boat is a triangle, the wake from it is really nasty plus the supply vessel is much smaller and the crews do it very rarely. Side by side refuelling is fraught with danger and there have been numerous incidents. Not possible to compare naval ops.

Yep. can see it in the pic next to your post... odd shaped ship! :shock:

Can see you point. Plus, refuelling while towing feels much safer. Towing ship can control the entire manoeuver...

i have recently finished the most boring book ever written, concerning the operations of supply UBoats during WWII. Several pages devoted to at-sea refuelling, concluding that towed refuelling is by far the safest method.

Last time I reviewed a towed streamer op with this vessel the anchor handling vessel was simply not powerful enough to tow it. All the gear hanging out the back creates enormous drag and to hit the correct tow speed the seismic vessel also needed to have power down. The risk then become too high should the towing vessel have a failure.

The Seismic Survey vessel (Ramform Tethys, a PGS vessel) is towing its survey gear while being refulled, the supply ship and the Ramform Tethys are moving along under their own power, they will be making around 3-4knts. It can take days to recover the survey gear so seismic ships refuel with the kit out, its normal operating procedure.

Seismic survey ships are the "largest" moving objects on the ocean. They tow an array that can be 12km long with a spread of over 2km.

Ramform class ships were developed by a Norwegian Seismic Survey company, PGS (Petroleum Geo Sceinces) - using the profile of a Nowegian ship desiged for spying on russian submarines. They are very quiet with minimal prop noise and the wide back deck allows for room to carry loads of survey gear and in particular the streamers which, as mentioned above, can be up to 12km long. Not sure how many streamers the Ramform Tethys tows but I think some of the Ramforms are towing around 18 might be more, each with a seperation of around 100m between each streamer.
