The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Wimps ride inside, REAL men outside.

I include this pic to show how oldtimers among us travelled via the Billy Pugh. Sedco 704 decommissioning approx autumn/winter 1978. Replaced eventually with Sedco 701?

Foreground = temp accomodation units which were constantly hosed down when the SE flare was first fired up due to radiant heat. I was disconnecting this redundant accomodation of (VERY third world) 6/8 individual units when i discovered the flooded drive pods. There was another block on the opposite corner.
