Ship collision, Lanang wharf

I was asked to go to the Lanang wharf (not the public access one,
the one for trade) today to take some photos of a ship collision which
resulted in a cascading effect, damaging a berth of ships. I presume
these are meant for insurance and other purposes, so I will not be
talking about it. It was fun to walk along planks, climbing up and down
ships by holding onto a ledge and jumping (er…so that’s how they go
from ship to ship) and see what those oil refilling ships looks like.
Basically, these are the fleet of ships that goes out to sea to refill
the larger ones who can’t dock closer to shore.

It’s a good thing none of the boats involved in the collision are
the inflatable plastic ones like these rafts retailing at around RM
3,500 – RM 4,500 I saw at Wisma Sanyan earlier.

I don’t think it would have been pretty. πŸ˜‰
