Shauno,

I can see you are an old doodlebugger.
Boon is now using the vessel as a ferry between Gabon, Libreville and ports on west coast of Africa. Mainly Cotonou, Benin and Lome, Togo.

Last I heard Boon was living on the vessel and operating with African crew.

Don't know if you interested but I also heard that the Marie Louise 2 was tied up in Malta.
But that was a long time ago and suspect she now scrapped.
Boon is now out of the seismic business and I don't see him getting back in.

Negative on working for him.
I was a PC for Western and now rep for PGS, so I guess he wroked for me.
I suspect I worked with your father in Egypt with ML2.
Is his name Glynn by any chance?

Shauno,

Tell your father I'll be in Port Said next week and will have a Stella or two for him in the Korean Bar.
