A Travellerspoint blog

Later that same day

Well I survived the evening ok. Dramamine remains my friend. The winds have blown the clouds away and it is bright sunshine with a very cool breeze cutting across the deck at about 30 MPH. The waves continue to toss us around, though the swell is only about 3-4 meters.

Working on the computer in the bottom of the ship is not so bad. Thye movements are much less noticeable down there. I had a bit of a trouble with a meeting up on the bridge deck. The sway was really beginning to get to me. A trip outside cooled me off and calmed me down quite well. Have to be careful about getting wet though. The main deck is getting regularly washed and even the next two, Fo'c'sle and Core decks are getting a lot of spray. Bridge deck is still pretty dry. Yes lots of decks, three above main, three below. The main lab / hotel building is seven stories and is still dwarfed by the drill rig.

Attached a photo of a wave hitting the bow. Very nice considering the bow is more than 20 feet above the water most of the time.


The noise of construction / renovation in the engine area has driven me out of the developer's office twice today. The sound of a metal saw touching the hull is tremendous and painful.

Almost time for lunch (6 PM) and I'm hungry.

That is a great picture! Thanks for sharing that. Hope you get used to the ride quickly and no more having to go "cool off". I can only imagine what the teachers are going through.
