I remember shocko well. Also Doug . And you Mr Hamilton. Was on the Bering Seal early 80's. Was also on the Karunda and Baltic Seal. There were 2 gun mechanics on the Bering Seal who were assigned lookout duty on opposite shifts for man overboard drill. They only had one pair of eyes between them. Think they were both called Tommy Ended up in the far east with Cy Graham for a while I think you did a couple of trips. I was on the survey off the coast of Abidjan as well.

GSI Bering Seal

Hello, I worked with Duncan Griffiths on the Bering Seal as well as others, Geoff Corkhill, Angus Stott, Craig Sommerville, David 'Doc Shock' Evans from Norton who sadly passed away several years ago and Phil from Salford who I had many adventures with.

Doug McConnachie who was the party manager with Dave Jefferies the shore side manager. Doug is on Facebook and is still in the trade, he's a Director of an outfit in Bristol, I have yet to contact him but will shortly.

We sailed the North Sea, Orkneys etc doing 3D shooting alongside the Baffin Seal with a guy called Andy Roff and then on to West Africa (Cote Divoire, Abidjan). I eventually went to the Middle East (Egypt, Gulf of Oman etc) on the Explorer and then on to the Far East on the R,C,Dunlap. If anybody remembers anything of the above I would love to contact them.

Cheers

Andrew Hamilton (dog house and back deck specialist.....)

B55, have you come across a Seismic Survey Company that had as it's company logo the Earth with the tracks of a satellite looping around it. They were an American Company active in the North Sea at the very beginning of the oil boom. Regards.
I have a flag with a similar logo from the commissioning of the Fred J Agnich. It was a GSI ship and I was her captain.
