Captain William David Noble

The Offshore Industry has relied heavily upon insurance for ocean towages, location moves and operations for its unusual craft. Early work in the merchant navy and war debris salvage led Captain Noble, a British citizen, to form a company, later called Noble Denton, to act on behalf of vessel owners and underwriters.  He advised and approved preparations for towage of almost all of the early rigs.  The reputation of the firm was unblemished without a single towage loss for the next 15 years, giving confidence to the underwriters to continue to insure such ventures.
