I did my first trip as deckboy on the Rollo straight from the Vindicatrix sea school on 1st Jan 1965. I was sick as a dog all the way
there and back to Gothenburg and swore I would not go on another ship again but the call of the sea could not keep me away and after that I sailed on the Cavallo,Marengo,Rialto,Cicero,Turo,Rollo.
I finished my seagoing career in 1986 as a Radio Op.
