Lub Oil..
Loading ME Oil and Cylinder oil at the same time, 2nd Eng put the hoses in the wrong holes. Big problem, phoned the Norske super, he said put an air hose in the tanks and keep it aerated, it worked.

After checking my Diary’s
The incident happened on the Hemina in Savannah, 14th January 1991.
We where running short of Main Engine Lub Oil, I stemmed 20000 litres.
The bold second engineer put it into the Cylinder Oil tank which contained 30000 litres of Cylinder Oil. The air hose agitated and mixed the oils which were then used as Cylinder Oil in the engine. No problems.
Your right Dk Hd hot air was involved it melted the second engineer’s ear.

All the best,
John.

So it was keeping it agitated that made it work, not keeping it aerated. Now that makes sense...
