    The boats and equipment were a lot simpler and more dangerous back in them days.

      A video from way back in 1960 showing life on board the tug Zwarte Zee during towage of the 12-legged Jackup rig Mr. Louis from Gulf of Mexico to Bremerhaven:

      At the very beginning there are also pictures of some other early offshore rigs, incl. the earliest LeTourneau 3-legged rig Mr. Cap, easily recognised by the helideck on top of the bow leg. That one later became Chris Seager, working off Brunei, on which I did several rigmoves in 1975-77.

          For those who like to watch big offshore projects, here is Allsea's own videos from the installation of topsides in the Johan Sverdrup Field last year and last week:

          The Pioneering Spirit is now going back to R'dam to pick up her stinger and on the Baltic to lay pipe for the Nordstream 2 project. (Much to the dislike of Donald Trump)

            Stinger is a "ramp" that is used to guide the pipes over the stern of a pipe laying vessel.
            The PS probably have the biggest and heaviest stinger of them all.

            Still wouldn't work. But I got on to the site's home page where they had thumbnail pics. of their videos and the Johan Sverdrup Field one was there. Watched it and another similar one without any problem! Strange, Cecilia, that you can see it from Ombugge's link yet I can't down here! Excellent viewing, anyway.
            Thanks for the explanations, Ombugge.

          For those who have the time and real interest in Marine operations, heavy lifting, towing and more, here is a link to Capt. Jan Berghuis photo stream on Flicker:

          He has been taking action pictures around the world for many years and is well worth following.

            The Gyda Field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea will be shut down and the platform removed sometime between 2020 and 2023:

            I was Towmaster for Micoperi during installation of the jacket back in 1989 as reported at the very beginning of this thread. (Post #2)

              in the article they asume it will be lifted with the stern lifting system, but i stil have see any parts of it that it's build on her stern.
              but they have a few years before dismantling
              best regards Thijs
