I did 4 trips on the Valiente,up the river. From New York, via nearly all of the WI islands, and up to Manaus, Iquitos. Round trip of about 13-14 weeks. Drydock in Hoboken with bent prop, nearly every trip.
Had my 20th birthday in one of the wood ports.
It still has the Wow memories 50 years later.
