Has anyone here sailed or crossed paths with her before the tragic event?

Best regards,

Not really, but I recall both she and Jane Maersk were regular visitors to Fawley in the late 60s.

I was anchored off leixoes when she exploded ( On Fresno City ), a dreadful sight but that tug did indeed save many lives.
