Europa 234

By Rune_andersen
Europa 234 is titled like that because this ship has 234 ropes! and each rope does something diffrent, whitch i as a new guy realy had to watch. When we stepped on board we were told theres no stupid questions only stupid answers, and thank god for that because after 2 weeks i wasnt even 100 percent sure about what each rope did. But there is a system to them and i eventualy got the hang of it.

This is shot 1 day were we had a man over board eksesize. The captain whit no worning threw a ball overboard and yelled MAN OVER BOARD! we had been worned the eksesize would come but we didnt know when. Then everyone came together as a team and got the zodiac in the water and whit in 10 minuts we saved the man over board! (ballSmile)

After that those that wanted a trip around the ship in the zodiac to take pictures was given a trip. It was nice weather as you can see, then we pulled the zodiac up, got something to eat, and sailed on.
