A very happy ship, European Officers and Chinese crew. Sailed on her when on the New Zealand Japan run . Good party ship especially on NZ coast.I was on her 70/71 as 2nd Eng . Paid off in Napier and came to live in NZ. Definately had some good shipmates on there , anyone remember Sucko sadley killed in a road accident or Norrie Reed freezer . Old shipmates can contact me at ******* (Wave)

Love their coulor scheme ! did they keep them looking so bloody smart all the time, can't ever remember seeing a scruffy one at all. Allways remember standing on deck when going in to a port and without a doubt the first to be spotted was allways the star boats.....we knew it was party time then.

If my memory serves me correct, I can recall seeing who was responsible for leaving our calling card on the dockside. Obviously it was good paint to last this long.
