If I’d seen this first, with no background, I’d wonder.
But this is the left side of the same foto, and I knew this was coming.
Maersk Blazer, her 19,000 bhp crawling at less than two knots.
And what is this tow? Well, this part is the flame boom, and
the whole thing . . . P-34 . . . is
a FPSO. And there’s more?
Of course, there’s a tailing tug. More on that in a moment. P-34 expands to Petrobras XXXIV, and if it’s come into port, I wonder what’s at the well taking its place. If you thought at some point that P-34 looked like a ship, it first splashed as tanker Presidente Juscelino in Rotterdam 1959 but in 1997 was converted to an FPSO.
Speaking of second lives, I’ve done 11 posts on vessels with interesting makeovers, the most recent here. To see the others, type second lives into the blog search window upper left.
Chacabuco just had to head out at this moment; this is not another makeover.
Tailing P-34 through this point in the harbor, which without zoom looks like
this . . . that’s Sugar Loaf . . .
E. R. Luisa, all over 16,000 horsepower of her.
And I believe part of this same procession was this unidentified Camorim tug.
All fotos yesterday by Will Van Dorp. I included the kayaker and SUPers for frogma.
