Wild photos - doesn't look too drastic - could be a valve problem - then again could be 2 legs have ruptered which is pretty unlikely.

Obviously not built to the same standards as the North sea rigs - they handle 100' waves!!!!!

That's alright, then!

Codprawn, sorry mate but no trip to the states for you, and no big fat consultancy fee, Manos appears to have scooped this one.

One day you may get to rival the exploits of Red Adair!
