Submechanophobia and Claustrophobia in one image. That's a mega nope from me.

Strangley, even though I'm not keen on small spaces, being onboard ships was actually pretty comforting even though the spaces were small. I guess it's the fact you're surrounded by an endless (and sometimes raging) sea and the narrow spaces and winding corridors felt safe, especially if you had been through rough weather on that vessel before. A good hull will take bad weather well.

I think part of it comes from the fact that the accommodation is actually designed to be comfortable (to an extent). As a sailor myself I've learned that a ship is next to unsinkable under normal conditions. Unless you get a massive breach, by collision or otherwise, the ship should in theory be completely watertight as long as it stays upright. We've only had one leak (design flaw, we were working on a solution) due to water literally smashing against a bulwark in severe weather, but still it wasn't a big issue because of how small it was. Of course with this ship, after seeing the footage, it's a bit of a different story. Water literally squirting past the watertight seals, equipment being thrown everywhere, even the lifeboats broken. Not yreally our every day weather. I bet the pumps were running on full capacity to keep the water out.

How do you have this fear and sign up for that job? You sus af


GlowingNewt

“To conquer fear, you must become fear.” OP actually sabotaged the vessel for their own nefarious purposes.


DerpDaDuck3751

I remember the old oil rig from the james cameron movie where an insane dude is trying to end underwater civilization. I forgot the name though


warhawkjah

The Abyss?


DerpDaDuck3751

Exactly


LordXamon

To me it looks comfy, i would love to swim or dive there.


Coopetition

It’s well lit so it doesn’t seem scary.


Professional-War-488

Nice


Starchyatom

Looks like the entrance to the underwater level


starrpamph

Better stock up on things before entering


acatlin

And print out the walkthrough guide, or you're never going to get the water level rise/fall order right to get to the last key.


DJOMaul

Fuck that key. I feel frustrated just thinking about it.


FentOverOxyAllDay

Reminds me of the game Bioshock for some reason.

“Welcome aboard captain, all systems online.”


DudlyDjarbum

I would be more freaked out about getting shocked with electricity. Wired lights underwater freak me out.


PrunedPlant

Instantly think of deep blue sea! 🦈

BF4 vibes. That level was so janky


DoppelFrog

What's a Noble Globetrotter 2?


havoc1482

Noble is the company. Globetrotter 2 is the name of the ship. It is a deep sea drill ship for tapping oil.

This guy gulfs


MaeGay2988

Is Emma Emmerich on the other side?


peacewalker234

Obligatory "Colonel! I've got Emma Emmerich here... we've managed to avoid drowning!"


NoodleEmpress

Oh god, it reminds me of that scene from Titanic when the water is rising up, but Jack and Rose have to dive in for... Whatever reason. I already forgot. It'll it was based on survival, I don't think I can go in there.


Puzzleheaded_Poem_21

Looks like a nightmare

Look for the crew passage!

Here's my little fun thing about the Noble company. Every rig and ship they own has a name that starts with Noble. Some are named like the Noble Globetrotter II. Some are named after people, like the [Noble Tommy Craighead](https://www.subsea.org/noble-tommy-craighead-rig-owned-by-noble-drilling/). And then there's my favorite. The [Noble Dick Favor](https://www.subsea.org/noble-dick-favor-rig-owned-by-noble-drilling/).

My knowledge of boats is limited, but the wet is supposed to be on the outside right?


lolhihi3506

Omg they stole irl submarines from cyclops totally not other way around


strongcloud28

Looks like shes taken on a bit of water captain....It actually looks like the stairway to a watery grave, submechophobia style! yep.


InbredWomble

I wonder if the singing accommodation doors actually kept water out... I still hear that circus toon in my head sometimes lol. I also wonder how the MWD and Data Eng cabins look, they're behind the camera in the original video of the Drillfloor lol, just stacked up. Got to say though the chef on there did amazing puddings, and fizzy pop on demand... no having to go to the bond haha.
