I was on this platform when the tugs towed it to the North Sea, it creaked and groaned the whole way there. Our accomodation was under sea level, we were too scared to go to sleep. But let me tell you it creaked a lot more when we jacked it up out of the water. Comment left on 09 October 2007 at 20:21 by Dougie Shepherd
