My first trip as galley boy was on Englishman in the north sea chasing Staflo Oil rig after it broke free in a storm,

yes that trip to durban was a twin tow then statesman joined us after UTC bought her and doubled our towing speed lol we were off the nile when our water processor broke down and we had brown water coming from all the taps,

well at least memorable days if not always happy I went big boats after UTC couple of trips the Gulf Aus and the Med with BP and then USA , central america on a fyffes ship
