    Hi Terry

    The last time she was in the Port of Tyne was May 2007 - she's certainly got some complicated gear onboard. Quite surprised to read that she has 100 berths on board - quite a community  :crazy2:

    its surprising the amount of people the oil companies want to put on when they are working. most of them just spend all day whining about the ship.

    Cracking shots, Steve. I was hoping she'd still be at Invergordon today as I had be cut across to the east coast but found she'd already left. Now I know where she'd gone.
