Breezy Brent Bravo

The storm that broke the gangway. See the bloke on the walkway to get an idea of the scale of the sea.

I was on Bravo when a storm dislodged the riser - a pity it did'nt dislodge Ted Wright or Rab Galloway.

I was on there in Nov' 77 when we had one of those 100 year storms. I think the wind speed was 132mph and we were not allowed outside the doors for 4 days. People were sleeping on floors and in chairs and the crews on the Vildkat said they never knew sea sickness like it.
