Smile DSV Sulair - 1981 - North Sea

Hello all, new member to this site and looking for some help, please.

I am trying to find a photograph of the BP Diving Support Vessel SULAIR which I served on in 1981. Would be very grateful for any help in this search.

You might want to look at her in her latest config. I last saw her at Shepherd Offshore at Walker several years ago, on a Warranty Survey job. No mistaking the way that the lifeboats overhang (don't fit!) the accommodation. (Another BP Naval Architect Dept. classic)!

You will remember her with open boats though. I will try and find some pics. from my time there (1983-86) and post them.

Did she not become the Toisa Puma?

I have just posted in Special Purpose Vessels a photo of SULAIR in her diving support role in BP's Forties Field. Photo is from a company postcard.
