mv CMA CGM Rose to Sydney

In April 2011, Hamburg-Sud hired me to perform a compass adjustment aboard their container ship
CMA CGM Rose en-route Melbourne to Sydney.

Other shipping at Swanson Dock.

(L-R) Port Phillip Sea Pilot Captain Charles Griffiths, the ship's captain, a trainee Port Phillip Sea Pilot (leadsman).


A tanker at Gellibrand Pier.

Approaching Queenscliff and Port Phillip Heads.

Lonsdale lighthouse.

Charles about to disembark.

The pilot launch approaching.

Charles on the pilot ladder.

Underway to Port Botany.

Anti-pirate grating to isolate the accommodation.

The messman in the Officers' Mess.

Muster stations indicated by rank, making it quick and easy to see if anyone is missing.

The pilot's cabin, allocated for my use while aboard.

Some photos from around the ship.

Early morning in Port Botany (Sydney).
