OBO's , versatile bulk carrier or costly mistake ?,.

I can think of a better description but would possibly be too rude to post on
open forum.

OBO's brings to mind:
Wading chest deep in flooded duct keels trying to fit sheets of jointing round a rotton ballast main line with bandit tapes so we could get the ballast out while loading iron ore.
Cleaning the crude wax off nests of 'portable' heating coils before lifting them with a real Heath Robinson affair to stow under the hatches.
Finding cracks between the lower wing ballast tanks that I could locate with the sound of air whistling through them.
Trying to set up timber with wedges in upper wing tangs to stop the heated Dumai Crude running down into the double bottoms in B/As as it was really gassed up.
Looking back I did enjoy it but I must have used up a lot of my nine lives.

Superb facilities compared to the old Tramp's, pity they did not include a soundproof rubber walled Cabin for those who completely lost it after the problem's that eminated from the running of these "Combination" vessel's.
