Nice photo The Grampian boats have come a long way since they first arrived on the scene.
They were always a welcome sight sitting beside you.

You coped because you were seldom needed (thankfully), but as was shown with Piper Alpha - the lack of equipment was made up for tenfold - in selfless bravery.

It's good to see proper emergency response vessels these days.

Once stood in the engine room door on Piper Alpha watching a Sea King from Lossie lifting a chap from one of the standby boats. Early morning, pitch black, howling gale and the standby boat with her helideck turned into the platform. Great bravery on both points but just another night out there.
Remember the Silver Pit well and had not long left Piper when she went in, lost a lot of friends that night.
