Hi all,
It's a small world. I just met a Canadian guy called Allan Murray who worked in the North Sea years ago and said he met a guy from Buckie called Allan Murray.
Any idea what happened to the Buckie Allan Murray. I beleive he was a Captain but I don't know who for. The Canadian guy worked for Robin Marine and then
Haliburton.

Zapata bought Offshore Marine in mid-1980, just as I resigned from the "Cumbria Shore", where I had been First Mate with Capt. Albert Hodgson, to join Balder Offshore Canada Inc, as Master. I saw the Scotia Shore and Breton Shore (built in Pictou, N.S.) in Eastern Canada. They became seismic ships "Fred J Agnich" and "Edward O. Vetter", and one came back to Canada as Secunda Marine's "Cabot Sea", which was subsequently sold to Panama, and last heard of in Nigeria. I also see the former "Polar Shore", which now lives in Quebec as "Ocean Foxtrot". Alan Knight.

Knighta, thanks for your input and the information about the Polar Shore. It is one of the ships that I served on and having problems finding a picture of it. At least I can add a picture of the Ocean Foxtrot to http://www.brucewalls.com/captain/

1968 - Arctic Shore / Atlantic Shore
1969 - Nova Shore / Pacific Shore / Tropic Shore / Cook Shore
1970- Island Shore / Cape Shore / Petrel Shore / Strait Shore
1971 - Bay Shore / Polar Shore
1972 - Channel Shore / Ocean Shore
1973 - Shetland Shore / Orkney Shore / Bass Shore / Scotian Shore / Breton Shore

After this, I believe they had some more built - named the 'Weather Class' built in 1974

Fastnet Shore / Lundy Shore / Forties Shore / Cromarty Shore

That's all I have on OM but I believe they were 'Zapped' in 1980 - 81.

Not for getting the Cathedral Class ,
Mercia , Cumbria , Anglia Shore , have pictures and sailed on all three..

In late 1999, I tied up alongside a rusting hulk in Batam that looked familiar. As I walked along the quay on the way to the bush bar, I saw the old name still visible forward, Viking Shore (I think) so had a look aboard. She had been more or less gutted and 2 Allen Diesels in bits on the plates. Apparently the cowboys who owned her bought 2 but could only get one going by cannibalising the other. She was a very depressing sight. the last time I had been aboard was in the late 70s when she did her bollard pull test in Devonport Dockyard. It appeared impossible to obtain spares for Allen Diesels in the Far East any more.

As I think I remember. The Polar shore was sister to the Bay Shore and had English Electric diesels. The Polar bad ice breaker class and CP props. In 74 she was damaged breaking the ice to open the harbour in St Johns. I was Chief on the Bay Shore and she was great Tow Boat.

Mercia , Cumbria , Anglia Shore were the Kingdom Class, the Cathedral class consisted of the Norwich, Cambridge and Durham Service.

George Goodison Mate. Thomas Grimes AB and Leonard Dawson Engineer.
All were as previously stated from North Shields.
The blowout on the platform was eventually brought under control by the (now famous) Red Adair.
It was an incredible feat of bravery that the ship undertook the rescue and a local tragedy that is still know about today.
I knew a Len Dawson from North Shields. A heavy set guy. I think he
Had been on trawlers and then went to the Salvesen Fairtry factory boats. I heard about the sinking but had no idea he was one of the lost.

Hello. I have just joined. I am trying to get together photos of all the ships/Rigs I was on. Does anyone have a photo of the MV Atlantic Shore and East Shore. I was also on the South Shore in Venice. Atlantic Shore in Chittagong. Pacific Shore out of Middlesbrough. North Shore/Suffolk Shore out of Grt Yarmouth. Then took Atlantic Shore to Lome(Togo). Then Atlantic Shore from Singapore to Darwin. Then Darwin to Balik Papan. All this from 1968-71

offshore marine

Joined in 1978 when i came ashore and sailed on many of the OM Boats allover the North sea, Gulf and Africa. Was there when sold to Zapata.
Also sailed on Svitzer Mercator, the old Cape shore
Crescent shipping lists the original fleet but does not mention Petrel, Tern or Hector Gannet of which i have photos.
Their first supply boat was a coaster belonging tothe founding company.

Polar Shore/Ocean Foxtrot

"Polar Shore", latterly in Canada (where she took part in the deep-water salvage of the oil-barge "Irving Whale") as "Ocean Foxtrot", has now sailed to the Caribbean, under the St. Vincent & Grenadines flag, but still with the name "Ocean Foxtrot".

Re photo I posted of Dogger Shore/Dogger Service/Dubai Sky/LuLu (now in Iran) the vessel inboard of Dubai Sky appears to be of the same design construction as the Shetland Shore/Service.
