I could not resist contributing they holiday photo which I took in the port of Motril in southern Spain the other day. It is the Saipem FDS, FDS apparently standing for Field Development Ship. It is a flexible pipe layer fitted with a 270t Jaylay tower. It is 160 metres long with accommodation for 243 people. It was built in 2000 and one assumes that it is in some sort of layup in Motril which seems like a very large harbour with very little traffic.

Photo taken on 6th January 2018 and posted here on 9th January 2018.
