Photo taken 15-1-05.Ship arrived from Italy with
second load of Bass Link cable,unloaded some deck
cargo and left to resume laying cable.I believe she has one more trip to load last section of cable.It was blowing a hard nor'westerly and she made heavy going to exit Tamar.

but it was my first try. Better next time.

when was that up at bell bay, if I had of known I would have come up, PLA told me that it was unlikely to come to bell bay as they were using melb as their base!

real nice looking boat, good pic too nice angle, good light, though just a minor suggestion you should put the name of the boat in the heading instead of 'cable layer' to avoid confusion. other then that great shot
