When John Parks was Master she was brilliant!, As a young Second Mate under him I felt confident and supported. Under Captain Frank Boyle it was the same, he was my favruit. Hence the luck until a smarmy Master who only wanted to be in the P&O Limelight came onboard, granted he was a Excellent ship handler, but then we Had the crawlers. A sad time for shipping. I am now a Marine Superintendent so I know what to expect. I never crawled in my life! And never will!
