I was on the Labrador a few months before this picture was taken. The rig was in Rotterdam at the time. But, it was jacked up into the same position, with the same air gap as in the picture at low tide. I was operating the fast rescue craft. At the start of my shift, I met my relief on deck. When I asked him where the rescue boat was, he told me it had been left tied up underneath the rig. Unfortunately he had tied up the boat at low tide. when I looked over the side, I noticed that the tide had came in, and all I could see was a rope leading to an area which was now under water.
