I also worked on P84 for Forex Neptune as a Crane Op. Can't remember what year cos it seems about a hundred years ago!!!. Damn good grub and good bunch of guys. Went to the bottom of one of the legs (inside!!!) and call me a wimp but that was scary. During one stormy night my Mani crane was flooded with sea water in the engine compartment which was not good seeing as the motors where all electric!!. Oh wot fun we used to have before HSE started asking questions. Those early day were rough and ready but I loved every minute of them.

I have just posted a Trailer for the film we made on P84. If you go to youtube and search for 'North Sea Scandal' you will find it. Full film to follow!
