Hi The MS Trinculo was a bulk carrier of 11205 gross tons, registered in London. I was a first trip junior on her. Sailed from Barry dock Dec. 1970 loaded iron ore in Canada and returned to Barry in Jan '71 where I paid off.

Technically an ore carrier she was part of our (BISCOre/BSC), then medium sized, fleet along with the Denholm 'Duns' /RS Dalgliesh Pennyworth etc......a good workhorse on a rough trade....always nice Masters.

...........and I was her Port agent from 1960 and then her Head Office scheduler till she left our fleet in the 70's.......but we both know she wasn't a tanker James!

I was on her 3/8/62 - 13/10/62 as JOS and again 26/11/65 - 27/12/65 as EDH
Enjoyed both trips, good crew and also a good feeder.
