    Paolo,

    I've been so busy behind the scenes, I didn't have a chance to say thank you. Nicely done!

    So do most of the super yachts have this drop lighting behind the names on their transoms? Seems tacky to me.

    Great shots of Octopus!

    http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=102997977&size=o

    Just wondering about something I see in this shot. If you look on either side of the hanger garage level one landing up, there appears to be a turret like device mounted on each side. Are these a high-pressure water discharge system to help with unwanted guest? I really have no idea:eek:

    Cheers all

    Those are aft wing stations equipped with a ray gun intended for errant linehandlers;)

    They do look like mini turbo-lasers, don't they? LOL

    They look like fire stations with foam injection capability. Would make sense since the helicopter pad is in that area and fire suppression would be required. If they can actually be used to dissuade uninvited guests that would just be a bonus.

    “Codger”

    I think we are both wrong. But I also like the ray gun Idea:) .

    If they are used for fire suppression or water cannons it would mean the crew member would have to be outside of the wing station platform in order to aim at the landing pad or staircase.

    I remember a PDF file with some great pictures of Octopus and these showed an Arial view of this location. I think this is more of a life raft deployment area and stern docking tether line ejection points.

    See the link below

    Not sure if that was ok to post, I found that link thought another site to do with crew placement but didn't think about the host site. It is a good pdf file on Octopus but I apologize to the mods for not asking first.
