Joined the Lundy Shore at the Montrose Oil Field on my birthday, 16-07-79 and completed 8 tours before leaving on 05-01-81. Working out of Aberdeen the whole time and not too sure which other ports we visited.
Spent a lot of time on standby as the emergency anchor handler in the Brent area so had plenty of time to play bridge (card game) every evening with Eddie Dean the C/Eng, Mark Johansson the 3/Eng and the cook.
Having a young daughter and another baby on the way I wanted to be closer to home. Offshore Marine had recently been taken over by Zapata Marine and an opportunity came along to join the Venture Service in Great Yarmouth. I jumped at the chance and a week after leaving the Lundy Shore in Aberdeen I joined my new ship in Great Yarmouth.
