back in the day

A rather interesting video I found on you tube, documenting the engineering & people behind the Marathon Brae Alpha oil platform. 
This is of interest to me, as I worked for several years in the construction yard that fabricated the Jacket for this platform at Ardersier, on the Moray coast & of course, my general interest in offshore engineering.
Sadly this yard was decommissioned a few years ago, but I intend to visit the site in a few weeks with the bike so see how it looks now.
