I believe that the jack-up on the left is the Irish Sea Pioneer - spent 4 months on this some years ago. Good little flotel

Hi Jerry the jack up on the left isn't the ISP, its the old jack-up called the Morecambe Flame.

I stand corrected and thanks for that info. I certainly was on the ISP in 2002 and it was good, apart from the never-ending gas alarms from the Douglas! The food was great!!
