Installing the fenders offshore took some doing. We had to weld a windlass to the deck above to take the vertical weight and the assistance of a supply ship with a line made to a wndlass on board to help control the positioning of this fabrication. Then of course the good old fashioned fitters and welders. The forman rigger had nightmares with this and of course our big boss Erik Sieghart! Anyone remember this Austrian fiend from New Orleans?!!! (Our mighty leader for a good few years so he was!)
