Once the agent's barge was alongside and the harbour authorities had cleared the rig and granted us "free pratique", we were able to go about our business. We hadn't put down the anchor, preferring to remain in dynamic positioning mode for the few hours we were going to be there. One of the tasks that a drilling rig doesn't often get the opportunity for, being out in the open ocean for most of its life, is to safely put the lifeboats in the water and send them away from the ship's side for training purposes, so being in very sheltered waters we made the most of our time in that respect. We also, of course, took the opportunity to launch the fast rescue craft and our intrepid mariners Bryan English, Thomas Johansen and Bryan Maher put on brave faces and took one for the team. It' a tough job, but someone had to do it!
