Worked with her in Aug '92
Hauling chain off the seabed of Loch Kishorn, that was used to moor the Ninian Central platform some 16 years earlier.
I was on AHT Maersk Supporter; we went grappling for the chain, got it on deck, power washed it, then flaked it out in nice neat fleets for the MM to pick up off our deck and into a waiting coaster.
It then went to Antwerp, clean and inspected proper, then shipped to the Far East for an SBM mooring.
All i remember is the stench of the mud and the midges!!
