The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch
Scotland's Rig Yards
Nigg 74 Top East Cluster
I was sent to put a root weld on that cluster with I.S. welder. It was nearly an inch gap. The stick welders could not manage that. I believe such roots are bad engineering but Dougie the foreman said, as he always did if there was any doubt, "Horse On."
