In 1978 the BP Springer, a coastal tanker hit the TEV Rangatira some where in the UK, resulting in minor damage to the Rangatira. Does anyone know what happened and where it happened.

Blair,

From nzmaritime site. Collision happened March 18, 1978 at Loch Kishorn. Damage to Rangatira described as minor. At the time, Rangatira was under charter to Sea Truck Trading A/S of Stavanger as an accommodation ship at the building site of an oil production platform at Loch Kishorn, and was tied up at a small jetty there.

Regards, Dennis.

Thanks for that. It seems she had a few small mishaps after she left the NZ coast.
