I was a mudlogger on that rig when it first came to the Gulf from California. That big white box on the port side is my logging unit. Neat. Thanks for posting this Kevin.

Still called the Coral Sea, operating since the early 90's as a diamond mining vessel of the coast of South Atlantic off Namibia/South Africa and very much still recognisable.

Great photo. Thanks. I was one of her captains from Nov 84-Mar 85. I worked opposite captain Adolf.

My Father Raymond was onboard during the 1970's when it was doing offshore exploration along with the Glomar Challenger and Explorer...

Wow.. what a memory.. I did the sea trials and the first test drill of the Coral Sea when it left the Levingston ship yards down in Orange, TX. We did the first test drill off the coast of LA. After the Coral Sea, I did sea trials on the Java Sea. I decided not to go on the Java Sea after it was tested and sent overseas. Opted to go to college instead. The Java Sea sank in 83 losing 81 souls. I should get out my old photos of the Coral Sea and scan them and post them. My father was also on the Glomar Explorer. He had many stories that he shared with me before he died about the capturing of the sub and how that whole operation was screwed up by a loud mouth reporter that basically killed the project before it could be completed.

I was on the Glomar Java Sea in Gulf of Mexico and off Calif just before it went to South China Sea. I have many pictures of ship and crew.

I started work as Ordinary Seamen/Deck Hand on the Glomar Coral Sea in Orange, Texas in June 1974. We drilled a couple holes for EXXON in the Gulf of Mexico then we loaded up and headed for Alexandria, Egypt (It took a month). We were then under contract with ESSO to drill in the Nile River Delta in the Mediterranean Sea. We were working 2 on and 2 off and living in Malta (Had a great time). After 6 months of drilling in the Mediterranean we drug up and headed for California to drill in the Santa Barbra Channel. I worked there for about 6 months until I got ran off by Dan Watson. I moved back to Houston where I landed a job on the Glomar Pacific in August 1977. I am still in Houston and not in the oil industry.

I was a mudlogger on the Coral Sea when she was drilling for a consortium of oil companies in the Santa Barbara Channel in the mid-seventies. Did two deep exploratory wells, one managed by Gulf, the other by Texaco, before being shipped to the Naval Reserve in Taft and then, finally, to Barstow for geothermal well logging.

Added by Colin E. Cunningham, PG, CEG (CA), RG (AZ) on 24 February 2009.
My Dad was a Crane operator when it went to Egypt and we lived on Malta. Great times, still think of the folks my Pop worked with then. He was there off the coast of Calf. had a Heart attack and that was the end of his run. He was one of the original crew when it went underway. In Memory Of Earl Giesy Jan 17,1994.

I was an engineer aboard the Glomar Java Sea on it's last ocean crossing, from San Francisco to Hong Kong. Several months before, two people were killed on the ship, by falling through a pipe hatch to the bottom of the ship.

Added by Rob Silver, Chief Engineer (retired) on 30 July 2009.
WOW, I was on the Coral Sea in the Santa Barbara Channel on a deep well for Texaco. I remember natural gas leaking out around the outside of the casing and a big concern about getting it under control. There is a platform there now, still producing a lot of Gas. The rest of my time on the Coral Sea is sort of a fog... 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off.

Added by Loyd Champion on 13 August 2009.
When the Glomar Java Sea arrived in Hong Kong from San Francisco, after its last ocean crossing, a crew member calling himself "Jim" went to the captain, and identified himself as having been specially assigned as a "secret agent," to keep a file on which crew members had smoked dope or consumed alcohol on the voyage.

The group got the name "the dirty dozen;" they were fired, and sent home separately. some of them are probably alive today, thanks to "Jim."

I inspected the drill string in port Hueneme Ca. before it went to Viet Nam. I was offered a job on the ship, I backed out at the last moment. I was 22 yrs. old at the time. My condolences to all the families !!!

I enjoyed reading your comments, my father Doicus Langley, was the hull welding forman on the Glomar Drill Ships that were built at Levingston Shipbuilding. I also work on 2 of the Grand Isle Class ships as a shipfitter and layout man. I was hull plannner on the Java Sea, and the larger ships Pacific and Atlantic, developed erection breackdown and ordered the steel for both hulls. We worked with some of the best in the industry at the time. Levingston Shipbuilding is only a memory now -- it is no more.

I was in Orange for eight weeks while the Coral Sea was being finished. I was an assistant derrickman at the beginning and remember Doug Pruit and later worked opposite Earl Giesy as a crane operator. Sorry about Earl's passing. He was one teriffic guy.

Wow!, glad I came across this page about the Coral Sea. My self and old brother in law Ray Rowe, I also remember Sam Morgan he worked derriks worked on that Drillship from brand new. I was just starting out then a roustabout working for crain operator Jim or Frank. Been so long, great ship & great experice. You all went on to Egypt, I moved on to the Grand Banks in the gulf then went on to the Grand Isle were I met the Coral Sea again in the Santa Barbra Channel. We were drilling close to each other.

I worked on the Glomar Coral Sea in The Gulf of Mexico during the same time. I was a Roughneck and Blue was our toolpusher and Jimmy was our Driller from California

Added by Michael Desormeaux on 27 July 2010.
I worked on the Coral Sea as a roustabout and roughneck. I remember Jimmy from Californica. I remember Blue also. there was another toolie from Cali whose name escapes me. Ed, I think. a jackass if there ever was one, and unsuited for offshore duty. Ed Clark. that's it. I was and am still from Texas, and remember the rig well. the pic does it justice. one hitch, as we were coming onboard for our gig, a workboat appeared alongside delivering a load of paint. a big load. at the end of the hitch, I knew everything I ever needed to know about repainting a drillship from stem to stern in two weeks.

Education is a wonderful thing. the coral sea is still alive?

Those were the days! I worked in the engine room aboard the Coral Sea for 5 years. moved on to the Pacific, Java Sea, High Island 1X, Moray Firth; then I took my chief engineer's license home, and hung it up. I've been fully retired for 6 years, currently drawing social security and a state pension. Life is good.

Wow! I have a framed picture of the Glomar Coral Sea hanging in my office. Got it when my Aunt died in 2004 and just now googled the name and found this! I don't know why she had it. She worked for The Department of the Interior from the '60's to retirement in the '90's...wish I would have asked her about it...

Added by Theresa Horner on 19 October 2010.
Thanks for the memories your picture evoked. I was storekeeper on board the Coral Sea around '83-'84, drilling about 200 miles out in the Gulf. Fulton Rivette, aka "Blue", was the toolpusher, and one of the most colorful characters I've ever met. Dave Landers of Las Vegas, an ex-submariner was Bos'n, I believe, Capt. JJ Lester, an Australian, I seem to recall, was married to a Federal Judge and lived in Alabama. He was sent by the company to recover the bodies of the crew of the Java Sea, our sister ship, which was sunk by a mine while drilling in disputed waters off the China-North Vietnamese border. Leonard from Arkansas was the operator of the crane located right over the storeroom, and Tim, I think. Other names are slowly popping into my head as I sit here typing...Undoubtedly the most interesting job I ever had! Glad to hear she's still afloat. Best wishes to all former Glomar hands,

Wow I was galley hand on Coral Sea brings back lots of good memories, drilled many holes off Cali coast, left a few juice cans allong the way.

Hello Rob,

I am a member of the infamous, Dirty Dozen, worked on the Java sea for about 5 years then fired in Hong Kong by Jim or what ever his name really was. But you're right, I probably wouldn’t be here today if I had not been a party boy back then. Now I own a business with over 500 hundred employees. You just never know what life as in store for you. Lost a lot good men when the Java Sea went down.

Yes I remember the day I joined the "Coral" Isaac Coronado, the first person I was to meet that day in Alexandria Military Airport, was the very same person who fitted me up with a job on the Glomar Three out in the North Sea in the 70s. After a brief grounding as a roustabout and roughnecking saw me end up working as an oiler in the engine rooms of Glomars Three , Five and eventually the Glomar Coral Sea .To all my fellow , shipmates, remember , i wore a hearing aid , i had dark curly hair , remember we flew from Alexandra and were met by five Egyptian Jets on our way by plotted course to Glomar Coral SEA .Good to remember you all , Jim.

I was a wire-line logger on Glomar V off the coast of Libya in the mid-60s. Anyone know what happened to that ship?

Added by Jim C on 11 September 2011.
I would have been with the dirty dozen but because of a motorcycle accident. I was on injured leave and worked on a few other rigs before the asked me back to the Java Sea. was only out for 2 weeks when I returned to the rig and because Global was always so tight with their monies they asked me to stay longer and work with C and D crew and when I refused they fired me. That was the best decision I ever made in my whole life. Because while I was still in Hong Kong after the Crew change I was when we herd the rig had sunk. Long Live B crew Baby and God Bless the Hands and many friends I lost on the Java Sea. <<<< Mark Thevenot>>>>> ( The TIV )

I was a roughneck on Blue's crew and worked with Jimmy as my Driller during the time this photo was taken. I remember Ed, Mailen, and the assistant derrickman but can't place his name. Had great times until I transferred to the deck department just before they discharged "C" crew. Things went downhill soon after during the oilfield collapse in 83. My brother worked this ship at the same time. Best wishes to all my old shipmates!

Worked as an electrician on the Coral Sea in Orange, Texas, in the early seventies right after high school when the ship was being set up. If I remember correctly, it had four eight hundred and fifty hp. electric motors per prop. We pulled in huge cables to them for power.

Hi everyone. My dad was on the Glomar Java Sea in 1983. Is there anyone who may have worked on it before the accident? I would really like to connect, I have lots of questions about what it was like on there.

Added by Dwayne Myers on 24 April 2012.
Hi, I worked on the Coral Sea in Orange Texas where we were still fitting her for duty. If any of you served on the Coral Sea it was the summer of 1974. I was already deep into photography and so I got some really good images of the BOP and other aspects of life there. Some of you might remember me as my nick there, Photofinish. I was a roustabout there. It was an amazing time for me when I worked aboard. My father was a key designer for the deep sea grappeling systems on the Hughes Glomar Explorer. I actually did some work on her too through my dad. He is no longer with us but he had some amazing stories, including when they actually lifted the forward section of the Russian Sub.

Anyway if any of you remember me from the Coral Sea please drop me a line. Some of my pics can be seen at: using the search Glomar Coral Sea.

Its great to see this site, I was deeply involved with Global Marine in the early 70's. My family even moved to Hawaii for a while because my dad was working on a "deep sea ocean mining project". We had CIA types meeting in our Penthouse and had some adventerous times there. My dad kept that whole undercover a secret from us all. I found out about it when it broke in the news. Amazing times.

Hi to all the OLD guys that was in the yard and on the delivery of the wonderful Glomar Coral Sea. I was in the yard from shortly after the laying of the keel to delivery in Alexandria, Egypt. I am Tom Daenen, I was rig mechanic on the Coral Sea, my Australian alternate was John Michel, on the voyage was chief Sal Balestari and Ernest Kruger was Vessel Manager in the yard. I remember Earl sorry to hear of his passing, great guy. Jerry was the rig electrican, we had a great group of talented guys onboard. I have to say the oil field has changed so much! All of the guys that made the voyage to Egypt can atest to the fact we played as hard as we worked. Thanks for the memories!!!!

I remember two coonass welders that made the trip, I will never forget how they bragged about how good they were. One night the welder told me, Quote: if you get a nick in your razor, bring it to me and I will take my heilarc and weld it up! then the fitter told me Quote: and when he finishes bring it to me, I will take my torch and sharpen that ting for you!! Damn, and they were that good!! Great times!!!

Added by Thomas G. Daenen on 23 January 2013.
I can't remember if it was the Java Sea or the Coral Sea 74-75 (I was on both) but on the first sea trials out of the Levingston shipyard, they had loaded the BOP on the rails on the ship and forgot to pull the bottom plug out of it. When we got to location and it was time to set the BOP, that was when they found out. I was the roustabout that let the crane operator latch on to a sling that was secured to my ankles and drop me head first down the throat of the BOP with a cressant wrench in my hand. When I got to the bottom I was able to remove the bolts from the plate and we pulled it out through the top. Best I can remember it was about 20-24 feet tall , with about a 30" diameter inner casing, wasn't it? Amazing the things we were allowed to do back then... Today... that would have caused a 5 million dollar investigation, fines and a boat load of people getting fired.

Added by Randy Fris on 09 February 2013.
Randy, do you remember that salamander heater I built on main deck? It was to heat all the flushing oil for the hydraulic mooring system? What a pain getting that system rebuilt before landing in Egypt. Can you imagine having a fire source on deck like that today?

Added by Thomas Daenen on 20 February 2013.
I remember well. Flushing all the hydraulic lines for the mooring systen and rebuilding all the hydraulic mooring motors. Sperry Inc. was onboard and we assisted with that task. What a Bitch!!

Added by Randy Fris on 28 February 2013.
Yes, I went to Sperry Vickers plant in Jackson to help find out what was causing the failures. We determined it was the Ketner link not fitting in the the windlass properly. Dave Fogel was onboard from Sperry. Due to that project, I was offered the hydraulic superintendents job in the LA office. Just couldn't get Texas out of my blood. Some good times were onboard.

Well just reading all these comments of the Oil and Gas is great.. but she no longer belongs to that environment. She now does Offshore drilling in Namibia (diamond drilling) I was a cadet engineer on her, DeBeers was one of the only companies that actualy trained marine engineers on Rigs in SA, Now I am a Chief Engineer on an Oil and Gas Rig and I am glad I did my training on her.. I am one up for most guys, as they all now coming from merchant navy and most are lost when they walk onto the Oil and Gas Rigs.. So bottoms up for the Mv Coral Sea... ^-^

I worked on the Coral Sea as a Roustabout and Roughneck in the early 80's off Santa Barbara California. I rode it thru the Panama Canal when it left Calif for the last time. The Driller from CA was named Jimmy Ripley. Bob Day was my Toolpusher. Chevron was the Operator.

I worked on coral sea as a deck hand O.S. off SB CA 1978 & 1979. Hank Blain was my Bos'n. And yes Dave Landers was the other crew Bos'n. Great times - but glad I went back to school. And I also worked with Blue off LA cost before Calif for a short time. He fired me after I told him to go &*&* himself. Didn't really care for the guy.

Added by Jim R on 25 September 2013.
Most of my sea time was on the Glomar Challenger, but I also worked in the old Global Marine House at 811 West 7th Street, in Los Angeles. The middle to late 70's, and even into the early 80's, before the bust, were heady times in the industry. My Global Marine work paid for college.

Added by James Galloway on 07 October 2013.
As we approach the anniversary of the sinking of the Java Sea and I remember my dad, as always at this time of year, it really warms my heart to see how many of you still remember the ship. I am so happy to hear of the ones who were not lost that day for whatever reason and my heart still goes out to all the families of those lost with my dad. Being a part of that event - and it truly was a fiasco at the time, with the company telling the families one thing and CNN reporting something quite different - has definitely had a big impact on my life. My dad was Pat Cates and he was the subsea engineer. Thanks for remembering!

Added by Tina Bird on 23 October 2013.
I worked at Levingston with many of the great craftsman there from 1970-1983. The men and women who worked there were from not only from Texas and Louisiana, but across the USA.

Added by John perpinan on 06 February 2015.
Very good to find this site. I was a tender/diver for Ocean Systems, assigned to help with the installation of the diving bell system on the Coral Sea when it was being completed at the Livingston Ship Yard. I was supposed to be one of the diving crew members to stay with the ship overseas. I remained assigned to the ship through the trials in the Gulf and then pissed Ocean Systems off and got fired, but Esso (I think) hired me to work with the crew trying to rebuild the hydraulic system during the trip to Egypt. I just remember huge pipes, flanges, nuts and bolts and real hard dirty work, and I spent some time in some kind of tank with an air chisel, trying to break up a concrete-like material that had hardened inside the tank. That was a long month between the Gulf and Alexandria. I remember it as 34 days, but my memory could be off some. I remember that they fed the crew well. Probably good that I did not stay on as a diver. Likely would have killed myself. I returned to the States the day after the ship reached ALexandria and I never returned to the water (as a diver). I came back to Seattle and found a safer profession, became a fireman, fire marshal, fire investigator and then retired after raising 10 kids. Now I spend time thinking about those times over 40 years ago, and the marvel of that ship and the people that worked so hard there. Bill Mudd
