Photo Comment

This Widgeon was owned by the J. Ray McDermott Co. of Harvey, LA. in 1969. It had been modified with Continental O-470 engines in 1955. The McDermott Co. used Widgeons for supporting oil rigs along the coastal inland areas of the Louisiana coast. When most of the drilling moved offshore out into the Gulf of Mexico McDermott sold the Widgeons.
