I remember the cabin. I worked on the Vildkat after all the catering staff went on strike in about 1981ish. Great rig. I worked for OCS working in the galley, showed movies as well, old fashioned projector. I was also on the Vildkat when it was changed from accomodation rig to an exploration rig. I was working in the laundry, I fell asleep and when I woke up, I thought that the washer was on fire, pressed alarms, tackled fire, with dry powder extinquisher, but the norskies said that there was no fire, so all going ashore clothes were covered in dry powder. Though I'm still sure that there was a fire?
