Stood by building in Odense for 2 months in the long, hot summer of '76. Discovered blow-holes in pipelines on the quay and ended up crawling through 1.14 miles of 36" pipelines including those already installed. Scrapped 60% returned to Stanton & Stavely. Pipes still leaked. I was 2/O with Masters. C/O was Roy Ezzard and although hard work, we had some fun at the hotel Windsor and Tordenskjold disco. 3/Eng saw topless sunbathers for the first time - interesting reaction!
