It must have been very challenging to drill in the North Sea, using such a small drillship. The roll and heave must have been awful. I drilled a couple of wells in the Mediterranean, on a larger drillship, that was difficult enough.

I was AB on the Glomar 5 1972 to 1974 it was rough some times if I remember properly we had 13' draft and about 5' freeboard, controls for the anchor winches were on the main deck, we were soaking wet all day but I was young and stupid then.
