Looking at my Discharge book the photos above would have been taken around September 1980. We were trying to get a pilot on board by helicopter, I remember the 2nd mate and 2 of the crew trying to stand on one of the hatch covers waiting for the pilot to be lowed from the helicopter. As you can see from the sea state not the best idea. Michael Taylor. Posted on forum 3 November 2013.
