Waiting to start the main engines!

Basin Trials 008
Originally uploaded by MercyWatch.

Chief Engineer, Ciaran (in blue) and 2nd Engineer, Andy (in red) await the word from Capt. Jurryan to start the main engines during basin trials! A couple weeks ago, the technical crew had basin trials to become more familiar with all of the systems running at the same time. During surveys and testing, each system is tested individually and commissioned, however, during normal operations the systems are all running as they are needed. As we prepare for sea trials, hopefully in a few weeks, the technical crew is now gearing up and becoming more familiar with the ship in normal operational mode!
