Default ARCHIVE - Salford Quays, Calemax Cargo Vessel - June 08 - 30-06-2008, 19:33

Gina D (my intended target) was there but decided to take a look at the Calemax as it was the larger of the three (140ft long, 22ft wide) and access looked easier. This ship was not there last time I week (last Sunday) so this is definitely a working vessel.
Access wasn't as easy on this one (the picture of the hatch below is not the access point, it was locked) and upon trying to leave I had a worrying moment where I thought I couldn't get out!

Impressive from the front..

Could not get in through here

JACKPOT! This set of stairs led up to the bridge

I decided to have a look around the Engine room, it was huge! 2 mahoosive diesel engines attached to crankshaft formed the main features in the room (I'm sure someone can correct with technical terms), along with a large control panel and countless other bits of machinery and mechanical watsits.
I went out on Thurs and bought an Aldi tripod, absolutely brilliant value, so this is my first ever go at light painting; go easy on me chaps :thumb:

Couldn't go without a posing shot lol.

I has to be really careful as the floor was incredibly slippy, and the smell was overpowering (still permeates my body today!).

Left after a few hours as I needed some fresh air, only to get off the ship and find the police chopper buzzing overhead!

Good day out :thumb:
