Dive Support Vessel Umka in the Gulf of Mexico June 1998

DSV Umka Thursday 4th June 1998.

Stumbling under the weight of my bag and over a tangle of wet and muddy hoses, cables and wire rope, I followed Tom across the brightly lit heaving deck towards the port side mid ship area, where a newly painted blue mezzanine structure had been erected, overhanging the side of the vessel.

He stopped at the base of the stairway up to where a 20 foot container, painted blue and with the Idrotec name and logo emblazoned on the side, had been built into the overhanging part of the mezzanine.
