Welcome 8Bells. Did a trip on an old Liberty Boat called Anthony back in 1961 when it was under Greek control. One trip was enough. Also did a few with Elder Dempster (Ocean Fleets ) back in the 70s.

Did only one sea trip as well,had nightmares when they showed me how you had to take the bearing temperatures on a Triple Expansion Steam engine !!
I was on the MV Obuasi very interesting trip to the States with the cadet crew . Can't ever remember coming across the Degema.
