MV Sirocco

A rather strange control system on this vessel. The controls were badly laid out and to go ahead you had to select forwards then increase revs by pushing the control levers backwards. Very unnerving while manoeuvring close to a platform.

Worked out of Kemaman Supply Base supporting a platform installation as a flotel. Not a particularly nice job and glad to see the end of it.
