All this week, I’ve been dragging things out, making you wait for the best photos!

Australia’s new Marine National Facility research vessel looks amazing coming out of the dock!

  1. Great milestone after watching the ship take shape. I hope you have a timelapse of the entire skidding?

  2. hmmm, appears to lean to port a little? will ballast correct for this?

    1. Hello James!

      You have a keen eye and you’re right, Investigator was leaning, and this was due to the ballast already onboard. This was corrected within half an hour.



  3. Great work guys!
