Yep it's Mr Allens rig alright.

 

It's here to check out the place and maybe the man himself will come over for a few dives.

 

Went out onto it tonight and back out again tomorrow to help check some dive sights out. It's really strange that something so big belongs to one person just to go for a dive on now and again. It kind of feels like something out of James Bond??

 

See you all in a few days, will try to get some pics, might not be allowed.. <_< .

Well it just goes to show, even if you have all the money in the world, the weather can still mess you around. Ever since it arrived the weather here in Exmouth has been horrible, rain... rain...rain and wind...wind....wind... and all trips have been cancelled for days..... <_< <_<

 

O well at least I get to cuddle my girl...good snuggle weather :P

It's a sikorsky s76 helicopter, not a spar...anyhow it looks like due to the all bad weather, the rig is going to move on from here<_<

 

It's like we have a wet season here now..I can remember it would go near a whole year without rain....not this year...

Need two choppers? This is still the boat for you! :D If you look closely, there's room for two. In fact one of the pics has a chopper on the bow, and another pic has one across the back deck/basketball court. :P

Soooo...how was it and where did you go?

I saw this boat in Whitter Alaska and then again in Seward Alaska when we were out there fishing. Yes, I said the F word. :unsure:
