ZAPATA GULF MARINE

Just in case anyone finds their way to this page, which i seem to be developing in a pretty half hearted way, still, because let's face it I am writing this, you might consider purchasing my book 'The History of the Supply Ship'  which has quite a bit of information about the original Gulf Offshore and then Zapata who purchased Gulf Offshore, and who were collectively purchased by Tidewater at a later date. I am still in the process of developing effective history pages which will be of interest to those who like the old stuff, much of which had gone to the breakers, and therefore is only survived by the photos taken by ship enthusiasts.

At the time of the 2013 review I have decided to include the ships for which I have photos. Whether they all remain part of the fleet is unknown. but some at least will be working in the Mexican sector of the Gulf of Mexico and Brazil, and undoubtedly there will be some still working in the Arabian Gulf.
