Benalbanach

The Benalbanach alongside at Sharjah 1976. The port was just being built at the time. We paid off there. 132 degrees in the shade and no air conditioning (apart from the smokeroom) Working Red Sea hours and knocking off at six in the morning when shut down.

Interesting to think that the "old trad cargo boats" actually delivered the cement and other equipment for the "modern" ports equipped to make the deliverer of the goods obsolete -
Such is progress with improved effectiveness and huge cost savings - but at and equal decrease of quality of life afloat.
