Nice one James. FPSO/shuttle tanker operations can be 'entertaining'.
I was involved as a tech. on the Shell Anasuria and sometimes dragged in to drive the stern winch. The sight of the shuttle tanker approaching in a heavy swell and the closeness of the operation was always spectacular.
Thanks for the write up.
