We used an EB1500 tx (called it G342) as a stop gap between our old xtl tx, G341 and our first fully synthesised tx, the RMT1500.
Coincidentally, one of the guys I worked was a Jenkins... John. We all worked a real gentleman called Mike Kitson.
Hello Brian,

Very interesting info, thanks. I found the IMR gear really nice, and especially after sailing on some of the older MIMCO ships.

Brian, can you remember if the shell tanker Amastra was part of the IMR fleet ?
