Refueling in Detroit

I expected something more exciting when bosun told me we were going to refuel this morning, but it really is just tieing off at a terminal, hooking a hose into a pipe, and then watching the meter, just like an old time gas pump. When they told us to take a break, we were at 21,000 gallons pumped with no signs of slowing down.

In any case, I got a picture of the setup and a picture of Detroit.

Detroit, from a safe distance away.

The refueling terminal. The pumpman is in the way of the ship to hose connection, and the pumping meter is visible on the upper catwalk if you zoom in.
