November 2013

Richard along with Nadya were surveying vessels in a large Arabian ferry fleet in Jordan. They had the opportunity to inspect two of the vessels while sailing between Aqaba and Nuweiba, Egypt.

This visit was especially interesting because it included a close up inspection of a main engine. The chief engineer and vessel's engineers removed some cylinder liners and the engine block bores were checked for cracks with a dye penetrant kit.

During the stay and thanks to the chief engineer, Richard and Nadya visited the Jordanian dessert for a short time which was very impressive and included riding camels!
