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.
