This photograph shows Chief Engineer Marty Hart in his 'clean' overalls in his bedroom on the oil tanker 'BP Achiever' in September 1990. His quarters were very large, there was also a 'dayroom' or lounge area, a bathroom and a lobby. The whole area was the size of a large flat. Marty had been working in the engine room. Working as a crew member on a commercial ship has meant long times apart for Marty, his wife Devon and their children.
