2. Pioneering Spirit (part of it). The biggest ship in the world (388m long, 124m wide). She is a catamaran used for installation or removal of oil platforms and pipe laying. Built in Korea, she is currently being outfitted with lifting equipment (built in Italy). She is scheduled to start work later this year.

These are great. Do you have any images of it next to something 'normal-sized' to get a sense of scale? BTW love the other two as well.

Wow, the width is probably similar to the length of the ship in front. Thanks.

Here are a couple of old pictures of mine. In the first shot the river is only about four or five inches below the top of the wall on the quayside. I was stood in a couple of inches of water at the time.

This was shot a couple of hours later, from the far side of the road that runs along the quay. The point that I took the previous shot from is under a couple of feet of water at this point. Fortunately the water stopped about an inch from overtopping the quayside wall. All the water across the quay and the road came back up the rainwater runoffs, that just pass the water out in to the river. At the time I lived about 20 yards from where the water rose to, but fortunately for me there was another block of flats between me and the river, they were lucky too as since the wall wasn't overtopped the water didn't even get that far. At least it got me out photographing the ships in the port.
