Just to fill in the space, there was also the sister the Topaz. She also went to India. The Deepwater 1 and 2 were upgraded sisters and the Energy Searcher the best of the bunch. DW's became the Rockwaters and the E/S went to the Swedish Navy. All were the designs of Midland and Scottish. The helidecks were raised on the ships after the Shearwater vessels were buit. This was a retrofit on the DW 1 as she was standing still on her first trip to the Brae Field! Cranes have changed, bits have been stuck in but look the same! Hope that fills in a few bits. Geoff Guest former MD of Shearwater in still going at about 80!
