Hi Nessie,

Thank you very much for that information. I don't suppose you can recall the name of the crew member who took the ship out?

I shall take a look at the Facebook website that you mentioned.

Hello,

I just read through some of these posts about the Globtik-Times on board and I thought that maybe one can give me a hint where to find plans of one of these two tankers. I am going to build a small scale display model of one of them and seeking shipyard plans (GA Plans and linesplans/bodyplans, or hull construction plans of foreship, stern, aft, engine area and midship). I searched through the digital archive of the Greenwich Maritime Museum, without result. I expected something there, since first of all it is located in UK and second, they keep a very large collection of merchant vessel plans.
There is a large model displayed in a technical museum in UK, but I doubt they do have drawings.
At the moment I do not recall any other archive that could keep some drawings of them. Great looking vessels with typical Japanese design. I wonder how the interior was, the accommodation.


Cheers,

Axel

Hi Axel,

Perhaps the firm in Japan that built the Globtik might be able to help with your search. If you Google Globtik and go to the entry on Wikipedia it gives all the details re the firm that built it, they are now known as IHI Corporation. Hope this helps.

Maybe some of the members of this site who were crew members will contact you with further information.

Good luck with your search.

Hello Vicky,

thanks for your reply! I did a search on the IHI website, but I cannot get to find a link to their shipping field. I even do not know if they are still active with shipbuilding, at least the site in Kure. Miramar Ship Index gives 2017 built vessels by another yard name, maybe it is still the same in Kure. Through records I found that both vessels were all the time under NK class. Maybe this is a way to get to the basic plans, but I doubt they will provide anything, anyway it is worth a try.

Cheers,

Axel

Hello my name is Paul Gregory, I am the youngest son of Geoff Gregory and sailed on both the Venus and London as a small boy with my family. I stumbled across this site whilst doing some searching to show my children. I have noticed lots of people asking for photos, I have my parents collection and it looks like one great big party! And that’s how I remember it friendly and fun. I can post some - but where too?

Cheers
PG

If they are photos of crew etc post them in the gallery under Life on Board section, it they are photos of the ships post them in the gallery under Tankers section. I sailed with Geoff on the London in 1978 when we had a couple of weeks in Nagasaki due to rudder problems. There is a group on Facebook called unsurprisingly Globtik Tankers you could join that and post your photos there, would like to see them myself.

Hi all. Glad to see people still posting on this thread. I've just caught up with all the messages, ( not a lot else going on at the mo ) I remember the name Ian Gore,( Scouse ) I have been going through old pics and have quite a few of the Tokyo and London, crew etc. Have recently made contact with John Parry ex of Wallasey area, now in Denver. He was catering boy when I was on my 3rd Globtik trip ( 1st on London ) Great to hear there is quite a few of us left. Anyone know if Brian Bush or Billy Potts are still about, or did the very cheap Sapporo do for them. Cheers all Rob ( Prestatyn )

Hiya Steve ( Edmond ) I remember the black and white stripy budgie smugglers ! I have tried to join the FB page that you are on, got the link from further back in this thread thingy, but it just says I'm pending, admin must not have noticed. Have found a bunch of pics of the lads, Frank Cobb, Phil Upton erm, erm... ( inc you ) from those good old days. Yep, feeling quite nostalgic about those big old girls, never had it so good. Think your only up the road from me in Prestatyn. Great to hear from you. If I can get on the FB, we can have a catch up. Cheers mate. Rob
