Old Singapore Divers

Postby OldDiverGuy » Wed, 11 Jan 2012 1:27 pm

Is there any old expat commercial divers around Singapore from the late 70's? I was diving here in SEA from '75 - '81 and worked all the commercial diving companies. Are there any Pubs around the Orchard Road area that the local diving community patronize?

I'm one of those old diver guys but not here quite that early. I got here in '81 & worked with OI. Was in my late 30's when I got here. Been away from the commercial side of the business since '94 aside from the occasional SCUBA sortie. But I've got my original DESCO hat here in Singapore and completely refurbished (SS# 550) bought new in New Orleans in '77 when I started commercial diving in the GOM.

If you were here in '81 you must remember the Margi and possibly the Chancellorsville & Seacrest if you were working for OI.

Not sure where the commercial folks are hanging out now days.

Thanks for the reply SMS. I'm sure we know many of the same old timers. I worked for OI on a couple of occasions, (mostly jack ups), Taylor, McDermott, Ocean Systems, Fraiser, Sub Sea, Comex, IUC.........Wound up going to the North Sea in '81.
