Thanks Gdynia,
but unfortunately all the ships listed are no longer belonging to Sanko. After they went bankrupt in 1985, most were sold off and probably all scrapped by now.

Paul Barford , can you take a look at this ship to see if you can recognise her as the 'Rhein Maru' please ?
I am pretty sure she is Sanko's 'Rhein Maru' of 1976, then 'Royal Fornax' then ' New Star' as which she is shown in the photo.
I understand that a fair bit of water has flowed under the bridge since you were aboard her but.....

Thanks, Rick

Info

Hi Paul,
Little info only on one ship.

Tasman Spirit was grounded at the Entrence of Karachi Harbor on 17th July 2003. Vessel was scheduled to enter port during afternoon high tide, but miss the tide. Despite Captain reluctance Pilot insist that he can still berth the vessel at OP-1.
Since water was low and the ship have more draft, it grounded on the sand just outside the entrance. Pilot in attempt to save himself ask Port to try pull the vessel out of sand, on Pilot request 5 tugs from Karachi Port Authorities were deployed along with 2 Navy tugs to pull her out but since she was laden with 67,000 tons of oil, all the manage after two days of pulling is to break her into two.
Later on the ship was towed by the Smit in 2 pieces to Gadani where she was dismantaled

Cheers

I did actually find a one of the Mint Prosperity Dad, given I nearly died on the bloody thing I felt I owed it to myself to find something, but have since lost it. Nice one, KB.

Also, I got you a picture of the Euro Pride, the very picture in fact that's above. Lost that did you?

Hi Patalavaca,
sorry for the late reply, I've been away a while. The picture looks like the Royal Fornax, but as far as I remember she had no previous names, I could be wrong there.But when I was on her in 1982 she was quite new.

Thanks Joller6,
a bit late in replying-sorry missed this post some-how.Don't know if you know, but Hellespont Pride was later renamed Braer, the ill-fated ship that grounded in Shetland

Hi Brian,
sorry for late reply, just got back on line.
Royal Fornax was my first 'foreign flag' ship and served on her from August to November 1981. Funnily enough, have just left an LNG vessel off Fujairah and on board was a Fillipino Oiler who was with me as Wiper on that ship, now 27 years ago!Small world eh?
Cheers,
Paul

Thanks for this one Joller6,
unfortunately, this Hellespont Pride is a new one, the one I was on was circa 1978

Sailed on the ROYAL FORNAX from April to May 1982 as 2nd. Mate before being hauled off and sent ASAP from Nagoya to the tanker SANKO ODYSSEY in Corpus Christi following a bout of ITF trouble on the later.
The FORNAX was my first non-tanker and it was a bit strange at first to be sailing around with a deck cargo (Tree Trunks !!!) especially as all my previous cargo training had been to avoid at any cost any deck cargo.
In the hold were bales of Columbian Cotton.
Also had to learn how to figure out how to operate MacGregor Hatches which again we didn't have on tankers. (Previous reading of Kemp & Young's Book came in handy that evening.)
Can't remember much about the Officers and the crew except that the Mate was Swedish who lived in Japan and was married to a Japanese Girl.
From my records she was the RHINE MARU (1976-1980), RHEIN MARU (1980), ROYAL FORNAX (1980-1983), NEW STAR (1983-1986), AGAMEMNON SB (1986-1996), SV TRADER (1996-1998), DF PIONEER (1998-1999), OCEAN STAR (1999).
Scrapped at Alang in May 1999
I have fond recollections of the FORNAX, at least she had a reliable engine, something which could not be said of the ODYSSEY and her modified Pielstick adomination. Crashed into more than one jetty when that thing refused to start.
I have a few personal photos taken whilst on the FORNAX which I will post when I get a decent scanner.

Regards

Andy Price

Hi Andy,
I've just got home again and reading through,found your post above which brought a few memories back.
The Swedish mate you mentioned I'm sure was Raymund Reinik who was in fact Latvian but escaped Latvia before it was taken over by the former USSR. His wife was Hiroko if I remember correctly and they had a son called Gunner who was on board with me. He was a strange character to say the least, he was on board for a year when I signed off and had no intention of going home to Japan, much to his wifes' dismay.She wanted to go home but he wouldn't let her,don't think she could stand him really and was always in tears. Only time I saw her smile was on my birthday, we had a party and I was dancing with her.Then Raymund appeared and gave her a dressing down in front of us all, poor lass burst into tears again and was ordered back to their cabin, the the old man (Ruthven Whisker)gave Raymund a bollocking! Happy days!!

Sanko Odyssey was well known as a ship to avoid as engineers, I never sailed on her but a friend of mine was mate on her for a while, Davor Sosa,Know him?
Cheers, Paul

Hi


I also sailed with Reinik on one of my ships in Sanko and he was different, that's for sure. I've never seen anyone with quite the same explosive temper.
I heard that he eventually left Japan for Sweden and don't believe that his
wife went with him, his son I don't about.
