Spent a few happy months on this one in 1973. An incident in Antwerp springs to mind. Shoreside started pumping against shut valves and we got a pumproom three quarters full of fuel oil.! Misunderstanding was the verdict but there was hell to pay!! Sheriff

Hi Derek,
A nice photo of a very familiar ship to me. The Tillerman was straddled across the Nene on her way up to Wisbech, some time in the mid 1960s, as a result she was permanently sagged by about 2.5".
Bruce.
