Rembrandt (3)

Tonnage 12,940 Dwt. I think one of the few ships to be fitted with free piston/gas turbine engine.

My first job as 3rd Mate after my Apprenticeship With Bolton's. Built by Smith's dock she spent a lot of time having the gasifiers being sorted. She was the second merchant Gas Turbine vessel, the first being the MORAR. Caused nothing but trouble and whe she was sold to the French they re-engined her.
Was strange looking down into the engine room with nothing their.
