Gowanbank 1973

1973, Gowanbank at anchor and discharging into barges.

The buoys and chains we discharged near Sorong, West Irian, was in Sele Strait (buoys directly into water and chains to LCT) were for a project for Phillips petroleum who had found lots of oil and the moorings designed to secure a T2 tanker as storage.

Our Charterer was TransAmerica . We were there two weeks, many trips to the Paradise night club were made! Also many excursions in the ships lifeboat. Great times.

I wonder if any people on here were there?
