Yes, you could even on rare days do a bit of tanning on your rest time, this was the assistant mechanic Alf - forgot the surname. OIMs would have fit if they saw this today I think.

Yes, Just found out that Alf Cooke was the Medic I worked with. Can't remember which rig I was on at the time. It would be nice to hear from him. The hard hat you can see on the right of the picture would not be allowed today, and these trousers?

Maybe so but back in the mid 70's it was common for guys to sunbathe on the helideck. At least his hard hat was close by.

I worked with Alf on the 700 from 1974 to 1976. I was Subsea Engineer. Would love to hear from him. I recognize the guys in his photos especially Shorty.
