Every clock in every room aboard Arthur is in synch with one another, someone failed to tell me that the clocks have been jumping forward some nights, 3 hours here, 1 hour there. Good internet connection and huge time difference has me in contact with the team back in Blighty till the early hours. My body clock is way out of whack. Missed breakfast this morning and just managed to get to lunch. The chief engineer escorted me round the belly of the ship this afternoon. Everything is supersized down there. Theres a huge concert hall of space where the 12 pistons making up the main engine boom away, surrounding it is a labyrinth of hallways, welding rooms, oil rooms... all of it started to make a little sense at the end of the tour, as 'Per' took me down this lengthy shaft, all the mechanics of the ship seemed to lead to this massive spinning steel rod toward the back end of Arthur. Reaching the end of the shaft and ship it became obvious the steel rod was turning Arthurs propellor. I feel very privileged today, not many peeps get a first hand look at all this stuff in motion. Thank you very much Per...the eyes were widened.
The thick mist continued as did the calm seas. Arthur has Attu Island in its sights, it will then be a soft right to carry us parallel with the Aleutian islands.
Dinner with Per (Chief Engineer) on the left, Henrik (Captain) on the right. Thumb in the middle.
On me morning stroll...
