Of the 17 vessels I did time on that was easily the most solidly built. Down in the duct keel and the tanks it was like a brick ****house built of steel. Sorry to see it go in a way but was certainly built strong enough for the job it had to do.

I have many more photographs of the NV to post somewhere. Mostly on transparencies of the engine room and at dock in Trombetas and Port Alfred, some with the bow up deballasted when we were changing the forward anodes.

Pictures of the Bridge should have brought back memories, but it didn't.

Sailed on her Feb to Aug 1998 and May to Oct 1999.
