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.
