Mobile River Loop

Forecast for the day was choppy conditions in Mobile Bay. Sometimes wrong forecasts are good.

As always, dredging Mobile River to keep it deep enough for ships is a never ending process.

Mobile Convention Center.

Nor Goliath, an offshore servicing rig for the oil industry capable of lifting about 2000 Tons. That would be about 4 million pounds.

BW Pioneer is a FPSO ship. FPSO stands for: Floating Production, Storage, Offloading vessel. This ship, capable of processing 80,000 barrels of oil per day, had been working off Lousiana at a depth of about 2600 meters (1.6 miles) making it the deepest water operation of any FPSO in the world.

Memorial Day Weekend and the USS Alabama go well together. The historic battleship had a lot of visitors this weekend.

  1. Wow, the skies were grand! Love seeing downtown Mobile from a kayak perspective. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I like the pic of Mobile Skyline -- it looks like it's floating on a glassy sea!
