In the late 1970s I was on the spider deck at the left hand column, (the one that's completely under water). I was watching a whale approaching in a straight line from about 3 miles out and he was breeching every minute or so. Sure enough, he breeched only 20 yards from where I was standing. At this moment I realised that he was black and white, big and scarred to buggery. A hell of a sight.

As a young legal/financial professional with Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co., Int'l. (NYC [Now: J P Morgan Chase]), I was responsible for both the Piper-Claymore and Piper-Thomson North Sea Oil Field Development Syndication's. Accordingly, I had the privilege of visiting the platforms on a few occasions during the mid-to-latter 1970's
