The latest photos from the Sembawang Shipyard show a lot of work going on in all stages of the ship building process for RV Investigator. Some blocks are under construction in the shed, while others have been washed and are ready for the shot blasting and painting shed.

The cylinders are part of the crane pedestal, and the sections of steel that look like a hurdle field welded together, are actually the start of work on the gondola.

And in the box is… the 52 tonne propulsion motor.
