yes ther are 3 loading lines and one return line ,the loading crane was known as the "preying Mantis" . On the shipboard loading valves there was an emergency shut down system which disconnected the arm if an alarm situation occurred.Quite impressive when this happened.Spent one trip on the Gari and Gastrana 1976/77
