Speed bonus for the shell charter on the Joya was 3d per ton of cargocarried for each 1/4 of a knot above 151/2 knots , and as she averaged above 18 knots this was hell of a bonus.

Hi All,
The thread I posted yesterday about Steam Turbine Vessels being 'Smooth,
Clean, Efficient & Fast' came from me who had always been a Motor Man, but as said on a previous thread who had lots of Experience on Turbine Maint. ashore.

A wonderful British invention used in all power stations today.

Arthur C.

Hi Allan I was3rd eng on the Joya Feb to Aug 69 and you presumed right about the bonus. I also sailed on the Joya in 67as jn3rd, 71 as 2nd and 74 & 76 as Chief just before she went to the breakers yard in Taiwan, a great ship just a pity she burnt too much fuel.

Hi john,
After a trip round the Cape on the Brandon I was told by the 2nd. Mate Terry Trotter that our average speed was 13.2 knots. He seemed to feel that was a good speed for her. Being the 4th. eng I didn't get noon slips. I don't think the chief entered slip and speed in the rough log.

Hi Foxy, I did 3 trips on Joya - J/E in Jan 1971, 4/E 1973 and 3/E later in 1973 to mid 1974. A great ship with fond memories.

Hi Ken,
themore I think of it the more I think I rememer a Ken. I spent some time in Ulsan at the Hyunday construction yard and was nearly killed when a huge chunk of conctete seperated from the counter wieght on one of the big cranes. I was living in the Yellow hotel which I think
Hyunday actually bought over and I got a lot of drinks that night at the bar downstairs.
