Hi Salty.
I know this is some years out of date from your message, but I sailed on the
Rushpool from January 1969 to april 1970.We sailed from Rotterdam to communist China with a mixed cargo.We were on a Chinese charter for a year.The old man was deconski,the mate was Mike Bradley and the 2nd mate
was Dennis McCloud.We had a black crew,all muslims.They were a poor lot
but sober.

Eight years late but I sailed on the MV Otterburn in February 1963. Signed up for a six week trip to Norfolk, Virginia but didn't get paid off till October more than eight months later.(Ouch)

They are a number guys who were on United on this site you will have a better chance getting hold of them if you post on the Tugs forum.I myself served my time with United from 69-73 including the Cod war of 73. Good hunting
