Lazy iron roughneck

Even Iron Roughnecks like to lie down. During bad weather in March 2009, as the result of heavy rolling on the drillship Songa Saturn, the Iron Roughneck fell over. For some reason, in spite of severe rolling, the other crew decided to unsecure the Iron Roughneck. A heavy roll to starboard caused the Iron roughneck to travel the length of its track. This was then followed by a heavy roll to port, where it came the other way at speed and promptly fell over. As we were waiting on weather, standing it back up gave us something to do, when we came on shift.
