The new ship is 120m long and 14 decks high with space for over 100 people, more science gear than ever before and more cargo than our previous ships. Of course this also means more to maintain, install and learn about with the acoustic suite alone containing more science systems than just the JCR.
I travel up to Liverpool again tomorrow and will keep taking photos while I am there!
BAS are making a new Ice Breaker, the RRS Sir David Attenborough. Although you have followed my adventures on ships before, this is a whole new experience for me, with the difficulties that come with everything being new. New systems, new problems and no history to lean back on.
Its very exciting though. Despite the last year, progress has been good and for now at least access to the ship is good. I hope to put up a range of things here, but mainly some nice photos, as usual.
