Had some laughs working on the old Epoch up there in 07

I worked on the Epoch back when she was new and located in the Gulf of Mexico. I never did find that Vee door key.

Many have looked for the fabled V door key, and failed. However, when I was given this task on the Sedco 703, back in 1978. I was given a 3 foot long key, cut from 1/2" plate steel, and told to report to various people on the rig, that I was the keeper of the V door key. As I was only 18 at the time, and brand new. I thought I had better just do as I was told, in spite of my suspicions that I had been had. When I had taken the V door key on a grand tour of the rig, the multitude of paper cups on my hard hat, confirmed my suspicions.
