I was responsible for positioning of exploration units for Shell Expro in the 80s and we used the Artcic, Baffin and Bering Seals. 3D seismic was coming in and I spent several trips on them all developing the technology.

Great boats and great people.

I worked as a mate on each. The Bengal Seal was a rig supply, the Coral Seal was chartered to Teledyne Exploration, and the Atlantic Seal was chartered to Digicon Geophysical. I will post some pics as soon as I get this site all figured out.

Yes same company, Sealfleet.
Any info on Arctic Seal.
Other boats in the fleet were, Indian Seal, Baffin Seal, Bering Seal and Ross Seal amongst others.

16 year thread necro, but since no one updated the Arctic Seal - she was lost with all hands in the early 80s. I'd spent some time supporting the Arctic Seal in 1979/1980 with navigation and I knew several of the crew who were lost (though I wouldn't remember their names now, 40 years later). I don't recall exactly where, but she was in northern waters.
