Regarding Bolnes, while she was named New Zealand Alliance, her managers were the Shipping Corporation of New Zealand.

David,

Are you certain of the managers? Atle Jebsen changed that company to the Union SS, as per my entry above, when he checked my manuscript for the company history, published a couple of years ago.

One would presume he would know being the owner, or would he?

The Jebsen Corporate structure was complex but I would imagine AJ would know what was what. Popular opinion is that the present management is not what it was.

Hi Bill,
Yes definitely run by SCONZ - the Union Company had nothing to do with her.
At the time, she was owned by Doyle Shipping Co. Ltd., Monrovia (Carrian Investments Ltd., London, Managers). She was chartered by SCONZ for world wide tramping and during the charter period ownership was registered to Eastern Alliance Ltd, Hamilton, Bermuda.
An agreement between A/S Kristian Jebsen Rederi and the SCONZ was signed on 22 November 1982 and terminated in June 1984.

A further indicator that she was run by SCONZ is the New Zealand prefix in her name. Union Company always used Union.

Yes David, I realise, but I just wanted to highlight the fact that Shipoping Corp had been involved with other Jebsen bulkers.

It would appear from latest results that Jebsens seems to be doing OK which is somewhat of a surprise to many in Norway. Atle is 'bullish' about the future which begs the question, has he 'let go' of the reigns. Time will tell.

I sailed on the Bolnes (1) in 1968 she was built at Scotts on the Clyde she was broken up near Ulsan in South Korea. I say near because she didn,t quite make it all the way as she was wrecked at 35.28 N 129.33E and was eventually broken up on site.(1986)

Hi Alan,

Hadley was never part of the Houlder Group per say but had a common directorship link and worked very close together regarding crews etc.

The fact that Houlder crews could be seen to serve on Hadley vessels was part of the confusion leading to the belief that they part of Houlder.

Hadley I believe is still in business.

The book covers Hadley and all thier family controlled associate companies.

Jan,
That was an earlier Bulknes, built in 1970 and run by the Corporation from 1974 to 1983, carrying alumina from Gladstone to Bluff.

This one had a combined Australian and New Zealand manning. There was a kangaroo on one side of the funnel and a kiwi on the other. She was replaced on the run by TNT Alltrans ( Australian manning).

I joined her (Binsnes) in Jarrow whilst new gennies (I think) were being fitted. We sailed to Alaska for Urea for Rotterdam /Amsterdam then loaded pig iron in Ymuiden for Shanghai. Thence on to Albany for Jakarta, thence on to Japan where some were paid off.

Light ship to Aussie again for Belawan, thence on to Diego Suarez in Madagascar to load sugar for Pakistan.

Capt Ronnie Safe was old man - a good honest OM who suffered no fools.

Food and accommo was good - a nightmare on deck for the few ABs and I believe they were a nightmare down below too. They were GP manned. The few AB's we had were always required for deck duties and hardly ever went below. Perhaps some of the engineers can shed some illuminations on their power trains.
