Well that problem have I also when I see a nice vessel.

The Cutter is for operations what a Hopper can't do, a hopper can only dredge: Sand,Gravel and soft clay (Hard clay is to hard to dredge), so if the hopper can't do it they will send a cutter to dredge because with the big teeth they can dredge: Rock, hard clay and other harder stuff that a dredger can't dredge.

if you want to know more ask it.

I will be honest, I'm not a ship spotter, but I spent the past two days in Southampton, and as we like cruise ships, we went to Hythe to watch Celebrity Eclipse and Adonia leave from Hythe pier, but there was rather more than that! It started with this lot:

(due to only being allowed 5 pictures per post, I am posting in sections)  ::)

I was down there because of my Dad buying a powerboat experience with Saber Powersports, and it was awesome, I even got to drive. Crossing the wake of the Red Jets and the Red Funnel ferries is just amazing!

Then the stars of the show came through:  :D

Shieldhall (vessel the last picture down on the above post), which I presume is a steamship, whistled at Celebrity Eclipse, and Eclipse whistled or 'hooted' back. I have a video somewhere. ;D

Shieldhall is an old Thames sludge barge (a pooh tanker, that used to carry London's sewage out to sea and dump it)  She has been restored and now sails as a museum type vessel carrying passengers in a similar way to Waverly and Balmoral.

2 october we went to sail with Kotug and the 3rd of october we went to sail with the training vessel from school , 2 October we were sailing with the ZP Chalone (3060HP) andSD Rebel (5000HP) . from these ships I have made some pictures from the Delfshaven (our training vessel),Endurance,Smit Panther, Hafnia-/Flandria Seaways and some other ships mostly in drydock.

First we went with the ZP Chalone, she had to make a test trial because she did not sailed for over a year due to reperations.


we did say our classmates  "goodbye" (****We did a little bit of a show off****) with the Chalone


(on the right the Spaarnedijk, she is sold and has a new name on the stern (I forgot the name))



Smit Panther



later we changed from tug, now on the SD Rebel underway for a tow.

the Chemical Aquarius helping till the Spijkenissebrug (near Botlek)


here you see 2500HP

 

all the pictures were made with my telephone so that is why the quality is not so good

the 3rd we went with the Delfshaven so there are more pics (Flandria Seaways,SD Jacoba,Northern General,Zapolyarnyy and some more).

we bagan in the engine room

A Bolnes with 800HP

a big loss for Scheveningen the Anglia Seaways (Maersk Anglia, Norfolk Line began in Scheveningen so they sailed here since the beginning somewhere in the eighties till 2006)


docked at the Waalhaven with the SD Jacoba behind us.

the Jacoba was waiting till we were leaving so they could assist the Zapolyarnyy

together with the Chalone


just before the Maaslantkering we turned and there was the Zapolyarnyy again


a while later the Flandria came again but it was my turn to sail with the Delfshaven

...instagram. It was a bit cloudy so it was a dark photo and that filter brightened it up a bit.

They're offing tours all weekend on the boat, but I work all weekend.

You people are so lucky, land locked in Chicago, not too many ships going by.  Keep up the great photographs.

Wow great season next year!
but the Oasis is going to the dock right? and not to the cruise terminal (or am I wrong?, lets hope that I am wrong)
