I remember being tied up to the Zenatia in about 1964 - she was anchored in the Persian Gulf at an oil well. I was on the Gulf Briton. The crude was transferred to us and we headed back to Liverpool. Main thing I remember is the heat. Felt sorry for the crew that just had to sit there week after week.

The Zenatia lost a man overboard in the Eastern Med. in '59 or '60. WQe were part of the search and there's a photo of me somewhere in this site with a lifebelt we 'rescued'.

Sailed on Zenatia from 22/7/68 to 30/12/68 signed on and signed off in Tranmere as Jnr R/O drydocked in Genoa. Thompson was the name of the master.

Baulkham Hills,

Going back to 1963/64 when I was with Shell, I seem to recall that the two 'Z' ships were Liberian registry and had 5L-- callsigns.

Did you need to have Liberian operating certificates? If so, how did you get them and how was the general manning of those ships arranged?

Hi Ron

When I was on the Zenatia it was registered in London, from memory
the callsign was GVYN but not too sure about that.
Later on I did have Liberian certificates for other ships, generally it was easier to get them through the owners, doing the Liberian medical then joining a ship and receiving the license sometime later.

Cheers

Thanks for that BH - I don't know where I got the idea from!

I've just checked them out on Helderline and they were

Zaphon/GWCY

Zenatia/GVYN

What interested me was that you had been the junior R/O on Zenatia and I didn't know of anyone that had sailed under Liberian flag in their 6-months supervised role.

Ron,

I am sure you are correct - when I was with Shell in 1964/65 the Z boats were I am sure Liberian 5L callsigns.

Puzzling innit? Maybe they were re-registered when Shell flagged out to IOM registry and Jan Helder has adopted the later registration. Even possible that they were registered under the UK when they were lengthened, I suppose.
