This ones for you Tonga.
What do you know about the "Furness Karumba"? I came across a photo of her the other day. I can only assume that she is on charter to Furness as she has their Trident on the funnel.

Furness Kurumba is owned by Japanese owner Biko Kisen and long-term chartered to Furness Withy Australia. FWA also have four other handymax bulkers on T/C, details can be found here:

Good morning Phil.
Many thanks for the quick response. I didn't even know there was a FWA. Just goes to show what happens when you're out of the industry. Tonga is the lucky one' He's still in it

No problem Leo ........I'm also lucky enough to be still in it, in a similar environment to Tonga. Though judging by his profile he's been doing it longer than I have.
