She was in fact turned to right position the day I mention, not one day earlier as stated by poster. I was chief-officer/DP-operator of TROLLNES for 8 years, until replaced by ROCKNES. Most of my shipmates wanted to continue on ROCKNES, while I went to another company.
Among those which lost their life on ROCKNES, was the captain, a very good friend of mine during the years we dealt same ship, he was even visiting me at my home just before he went onboard that last fatal voyage.
