I worked as rig electrician on the Zapata Navigator 70-73 for three years from Darwin and Perth. Ron Marks was my opposite and he had worked on the Investigator previously. I remember several guys being Toolpushers "Lightening Elliot" (he had many funny sayings), Gordon Wallace, ( a very decent guy whom I liked very much) Don York ( a good guy as well). Rig Managers Wayne Callan, Jack McGuffin ( Very strange fellow with light fingers) Driilers, Ron Parks, John Dunford, Both rigs were very basic compared to today's rigs and they were hard work and you had to be young and dumb to stick around but it was enjoyable.
