treasure seeker

worked on this girl back in 1981 cant remember were now, but it was not the north sea, could have been France or Ireland or even Africa.
I worked for Thule united (not the footy team)in the mud rooms installing and commissioning top hole shakers and screens. Good old days. went from the seeker to the ocean ranger off nova scotia, it sank killing all crew 2 weeks after I left . I still have the original roustabout magazine of the time dedicated to the crew and family's of the ranger.

It became the Bulford Dolphin, then the Aban Pearl. Its now lying at the bottom of the Caribean, after mysteriously sinking when working for the Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA. Having worked in Venezuela, I would say some incompetence was involved.
