Bendoran mid 70s

I was deck crew on the Bendoran back in the mid 70s, it was a Hapag-Lloyd charter down west coast of South America. It was a great voyage but some of the Engine crew were a nightmare. Mcphee was the captain and a good guy but turned a blind eye to some of the abuse that went on as did the Chief Engineer. There was bullying and intimidation against certain individuals that lasted the whole voyage and it was probably the worst ship i ever sailed on. I went to P&O after that , which was a dream, then China Nav and finishing my career with Cunard.
