I still wonder at how 'health and safety' would look at lightening operations.

I recall crossing a plank to the 'Batillus' for her first ever lightening. Weather deteriorating of course, we broke off after minutes and I was left on the froggie side. Shell Francaise showed me the other non STUK world. Modern ship, flowing wine with dinner (they immaculate - me in old boiler suit).
