Hi, Actually Malcom I lie. The 'Balmoral Sea' was called the 'Eastern Installer' (ex 'Arctic Surveyor') when I was on her. I was there for about two years before taking her to Liverpool where she laid up for a while then was sold to Cal-Dive and renamed 'Balmoral Sea' we all now what happened next! We are expected in the GOM mid May (I really don't know why they chose Suez over the Cape) The Med can also get pretty nasty this time of year.
Cheers, Ray Jordan

I just heard he was a 34 old from Tayside, killed by a heavy piece of machinery (mandrill) whilst involved in wireline ops in the Gannet Field

Can you help

Hi Mike
Icollect Ships mail "Paquetbot Mail" will you post me some envelopes if I send them to you
what I need to know is where the vessel is registered
You can post mail from ship, with stamps of the port of registeration anywhere in the world, so if you are British reg. you can post these with British stamps on in Mexico or USA and they put a Paquetbot cancel on to show they were posted at sea
can you help, this is what I collect
Fred in Doncaster
