Taking a well deserved break…doing what comes natural.
Under the big tent work continues on the last module for the bow.
And speaking of the bow, take a look at the specialized winches being constructed for the huge anchors yet to be installed.
Here is an interesting note of the arms (so to speak) you see newly attached to the stern (back) of the ship. It is called an “Ice Davit”. Let me attempt to explain it’s usage (sorry not my strong suit). Here it goes…There will be wires attached to the arms that connect to a large fishing net when fishing in ice covered seas. The “Ice Davit” will push the wires that are connected to the net under the ice and prevent them from dragging on the ice.
Work continues for the big move which will transport Americas Finest laterally on huge rails.
This weeks hull shot.
