I worked on the Southern Cross in the mid 1980's in Bass Straight. She more or less paid for my engineering education so I have a soft spot for her - is she still in service in the Black Sea as the 2008 picture suggests?

I am trying to locate Colin Blake who worked on the Southern Cross in the late 70's. I think Southern Cross was off the coast of Sale ??? Victoria, Australia. Colin has been trying to contact me since 2013 - 2014 on Facebook messenger, and I have only just found this out. I know he had been working on rigs up until 2014 as per his correspondence on Messenger. Any information on his whereabouts would be greatly appreciated.

The Cross worked out of sale from 1981 to 1986.
