I remember watching this in a safety meeting once and being a bit blase about it, thinking to myself oh here we go be some bloke not wearing gloves or something.

Then it happens, and the whole room was like 'fcuking hell!!!!'
 
Interesting bit of onshore work down at Teeside this week. All relating to the offshore wind farms. Looks like a good few years of work. Its really good for the area, there's quite a few lads employed on both sides of the river.

Lifting frame attached to the bottom, ready for a tandem lift in order to stand them up. Looks offset, because it is. Allows it to be lifted level with the extra weight on one side:

Bungee jumped off this fcuking thing a few years ago! Top tip = don't gob off at a party when you are pissed up, about how you'd do a bungee jump, when your girlfriend is in earshot.

Crane ops nightmare. Boom wire failure. Says Maersk Enhancer on the hull but was actually Northern Offshore. They bought 3 old jack-ups from Maersk years ago.
