Saturday 28 March 2009


Our guided MV FRAM hull tour continous, and the topic today is propellor. Very fascinating to see how large the propellors really are on the ship. The propellors are Azipull propellors. "Azipull" means the propellors pull the ship forward once in action. They can rotate 360 degrees. If we stop the ship and want to go astern, the propellors are turned 180 degrees. Our distinguished First Engineer Bjørn Jones (see picture) was kind enough to take off a couple of minutes in his very busy schedule to explain the function before we posted it.

Saturday in a shipyard is like any other working day, full throttle all day.
