The Treasure Hunter is now working off the Nor-West Shelf of Western Australia renamed the Nan Hai 6. I was a BCO on her for twelve months.

For those of you who remember this wild storm and many other times on Brent "C", will also remember Jim Hammond, Howard Woodhouse, Andy Wier, David Beaty and Sinky Sinclair just to name a few who worked with the safety dept. If you do then email me, it would be good to get in touch with you.

Jeeeeezusss! I'd forgotten how scary it got out there. I preferred the boats which just rode over the waves or ran into Peterhead (for a pint!) The shuddering platforms were more scary.
