Veritas Discoverer

From the forward ballast tank that never worked to the chinese food (there was a reason the mess was in two halves!)

Its definately down there for Veritas, received this from onboard:
The Disco rolls like a bastard, and that's being polite.

Actually, I quite like the layout of the vessel - not a bad
old tub apart from the rolling. She's 100% Chinese crew
and they have some very good people onboard. Doing good
work.
There's been an almost constant wind and we've had no calm
sea at all. Up to last night 65% wx downtime and looks like
3 more days of the same so we're not getting much work
done. Add to that a shark bite on the cable first day in
production and then a broken cable 2 days ago, it's really a lot
of fun out here . . .
