hello

Hi from a new member. My seafaring days were from 1969 to 1985, sailing in Athel Line, Anco, Panocean Anco and Stolt. Dropped anchor in Rotterdam and have since then lived here and there, in a number of chemical tanker shore roles. Now living in Hamburg, still learning about chemical tankers.
Regards
Hugo Finlay

Smile Hello Hugo

I am almost certain we know each other, its been a very long time, but I think we first met when you were a cadet and I was a junior eng, in early 73 on the Anco Duke, we never met up again for a few years but then we met up when you had reached the dizzy heights of Chief Officer and I was a 3rd eng, the thing is I cannot remember if it was the Empress or the Sceptre were we met up again around 81 or 82. I left Panocean Anco at the end of 82 and eventually gave up the sea in 85. As a sea going engineer I was able to work in various industries ashore over the years. I am currently living in Patagonia in southern Argentina, more or less retired and doing something that has got nothing to do with the sea or engineering, But I have always remembered my time with Athel/Anco and Panocean but left as Stolt came on the scene. Wonder if you remember me ? as yet yours is the only name on here that I have come across from my time at sea. Kind regards Martin G
