This is one hell of a good foto of a Bristow flying in with all that platform structure in the background (or should it be the other way round?). I love sketching and feel another drawing coming on from this. Brilliantttttt!!

Answer to Mike Beck: There were actually many "Treasure" rigs: Finder, Seeker, Hunter, Scout, Saga, Swan, Supporter. It was in the good old days! I was working on 3 of them 1977-1988.
