This was the second platform I worked on back in 1989. Wooden tilt turn windows and a wooden helideck. We spent most of our time repairing stuff in the accomodation as it was knackered but a gr8 crew of very friendly lads. I was a mech fitter with APG but Wood Group had the maintenance contract. Many happy memories of this beast!
