: Blue Marlin to visit Nelson NZ
: feinwerkbau April 01, 2008, 07:07:51
Hi all,
Just reading in the local rag that the Blue Marlin semi-submersible is to vist Nelson, New Zealand, quite a rare occassion for this type of vessel to head this way.
I hope to get in to town to see it come through The Cut which is 150m wide at it's narrowest point so it should be an interesting bit of manevouring to squeeze this vessel in  :o.
She's in to offload a steel support structure used when bringing the oil drilling platform from Malaysia. Time permitting I may even try and head over to Admiralty Bay, near French Pass and watch the rig being floated off.
