No, they tend not to have broadcasting facilities on offshore oil platforms.

99% of my work is on land, mostly at traditional radio stations. We've done a couple of theaters, and this is my third cruise ship. I did some work on QE2 in '99, we outfitted the Disney Dream in late '10, and now the Fantasy.

I just learned that DCL apparently has a contract option for two more Dream-class ships with Meyer Werft, however while I have made joking references to the senior staff about how "we'll get it right with the third ship" (eg: inferring that we'll never get it right), I've heard no mention of immediate plans to exercise that option. I certainly hope that they do- these are by far the most fun jobs, even if it means being stuck at iced-in ports on the North Sea in winter.

I'm sure there is no gap in the solidworks model; must be a mistake by a guy reading the drawing, not the engineer.
I have no idea how the gap actually came to be. I know that all of the sheet-metal is robotically laser-cut on CNC beds, but I'm not certain about the plumbing.

Yeah, but I gave away the design for the betterment of all mankind.

I spend about half my time offshore around the world and half in an office...
To bad it`s not really allowed to take pictures during operation, but I have some nice pictures from a crew change last February at Mauritius.

A local forum guy is trying to sculpt a ducktail trunk spoiler from expanding foam and body filler.

It works well if you know what you're doing.

It's half way through the deay, I slept 4 hours last night, my arms hurt from deadlifts, and I miss my kitty. I think I'm skipping the gym to lay on the sofa with my daughter.
