Drillship Ben Lomond

I was Master on the Drillship "Fredericksburg" from Sept. 1978 until she was sold from Atwood Oceanics to Atlantic Drilling/Ben Line in Singapore in Febr. 1980. Only the marine crew changed and the name was unchanged, initially.
I continued as Master for the first trip, from Singapore to the Andaman Island, with the future Masters for Ben Line acting as Mates for that trip. (Names escape me)

I have been trying to find some good pictures of the Drillship "Ben Lomond", ex "Fredericksburg" and later "Deepsea Lomond". No response on the Offshore site, so I give it a try here. Maybe somebody in the Ben Line fraternity have some pictures from the years she was operated by Atlantic Drilling/Ben Line and could shear them with me and others here at shipnostalgia?
