Re: Hello from Uk

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, OceanRanger.

Valentine's Day, 1982: a terrible storm rages off the coast of Newfoundland. On the Grand Banks, the "Ocean Ranger", the world's mightiest drilling rig, is pounded by waves more than 20 metres high. At the height of the storm, the "indestructible" rig begins to tip over, then capsizes. All 84 men on board (56 of them from Newfoundland) perish. It is Canada's worst tragedy at sea since the Second World War.

Welcome, I'm sure if you ask the right questions you'll get a dozen different opinions, you just need to pick the one that suits you
