hello to all,
I Joined Furness Withy in 1970 as a naive Junior engineer doing 2 voyages on p.s.n.c. ship "Somer's Isle " and then a coastal on "Cotopaxi. " I returned shoreside for a year and then joined Kuwait Shipping Co 1972 which later became U.A.S.C. and stayed until 1986.

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Allan.
I sailed on Cotopaxi but a few years before you did.
Find your way around the ship, join in and enjoy the trip.

I met Cotopaxi, Somers Isle and most of the PSNC ships on the west coast of S America. I expect you can still recall the smell of fishmeal.
