Cool Andalucia Star

Seen here in 2005 at Santos as she loaded orange juice for the far east.
At this stage in her life she was 30years old. The time I saw her before this was when we laid her up in Jebel Ali after discharging a full cargo of lamb, ex Auckland-Timaru, in Bandar Abbas.
August-September in the Gulf-wonderful weather!!!

I paid a visit to this vessel in Bluff in '78 after my oilskins had been 'borrowed' from Somerset. I retrieved said skins & retired back to Somerset all the worse for wear after a couple of hours in the worst bar ever seen on a ship on the Kiwi coast. Happy days. Must have been some conversion to a fruit juice tanker?

More than likley loaded in 40 gallon drums Pat or specially installed deep tanks. Bulk frozen (slurry) orange juice not the easiest liquid cargo to carry.

Guys,
Some previous discussion on her here, including some details of her conversion.
