Reflecting the international nature of our readership and contributors here is the Ocean Patriot in New Zealand waters back in 2008, with Mount Taranaki in the background. The rig is still with us today (I think), although built in 1983 with the ability to drill to 20,000 feet and with accommodation for 120 people.
