Lindenbank wrecked at Fanning Island

would be nice to hear from those involved - now 40 years later.

There is a full transcript of the MOT Inquiry online, and just had a read through. The court was complimentary towards the Company, but the Master and the acting 3/0 (aged 20) were fined different amounts as a contribution towards the enquiry costs.

Gave me a shudder when I think back to being an acting 3/0 at age 16 in my case, and not fully up to speed in the job.
