I was on the Ulster on her last trip to Kaosiuhg. We joined her in Istanbul, sailed to Singapore were we had a collision dragging anchor in a typhoon. I belive 12 ships collided that night. We slowly steamed to Taiwan, It was like she didn't want to go there. It was a very sad moment when we ran her astern aground between two ships. The gangways both sides crunching against them and even a flare going off from one of the lifebuoys on the bridge wing. Very sad indeed. Hi to you Nick, I remember relieving you in Istanbul, we once sailed together on the Buenos Aires Star. A really good trip if I remember especialy in Santos. Those were the days hey.
