Interesting information on how her pontoon works. I've photographed many Jumbo and Mammoet ships over the years on the St.Lawrence River but I believe FAIRMAST is my first one with a digital camera.

Hi Marc,

Great to see some Jumbo ships finally.
I was involved some years ago in loading an oil rig in New Plymouth on her sistership.
The yellow pontoon at the stern is connected to the ship via a large beam that extend through the hull. The enables the pontoon to be used on either side. By increasing the wetted area of the vessel it substantially increase the stability during loading. It is always used on the opposite side to the loading.
I shall upload some photos in the future.
Very interesting vessels to be involved with.
