Either I'm going senile or just plan loopy, I seem to recall meeting at one Stag ship in Trincomalee (Oh I loved that place, after a month or so in Calcutta, t'was like paradise just a couple of barges of tea a day to load ...... but I diversify, excuse me) early/mid 70's - modern looking job (at the time), 4 For'd 1 aft, maybe 12,000 DWT. large funnel like the BluFlus of the time with simular designed ships. I think there was some interaction between our ships, As I recall I thought they where liner-carriers and on this case running jointly (or against) BluFlu/Ben's services to/from Near/far East. Can any clarify for me ?

Cheers
