    Hi Dick,

    Sorry for the slow response – I’ve just changed my site to aulisinsights.expert and went through the comments. Most comments are just spam so it was refreshing to actually find something interesting. Yes the British Respect/World Petrobras day was quite exciting. Fortunately nobody was hurt but that was pure luck on our side since some reliefs and provisions had just arrived on the starboard quarter so the 4 guys who would normally have been at the manifold had just gone aft to assist. Lucky! There is a marine guy who works at Holman Fenwick Willan here called Bob Spearing and I was recently told he was also on the Respect but I haven’t had a chance to check with him yet. The Satucket was quite new when i was on her. I was officer-in-charge for most of her guarantee dry-docking at La Spezia. Fun times!

    Cheers,

    Bruce

      Hi Don,

      I guess we must have passed each other on the gangway! If memory serves, Norman Brown was the Old Man? A long time ago.

      Cheers,

      Bruce
