Hi Tony, I have just recalled the actual date was July 9th 1965. Should you be interested I have photographs of the collision damage and progress work in the Brooklyn shipyard where the bow was removed and "plated-up" for our Atlantic crossing. A new bow was being pre-fabricated at the builders shipyard in Bremen. Bill.

I have put some photos of life on Chicanoa on "Life on Board"
Not the years that your dad served on her but the scenes might be of interest.

Hi, I did my fist trip as galley boy on the Chicanoa in Nov 64 - Feb 65. Two runs to Tiko unloading in Dieppie and Genoa and then over to Jamacia. I recall the ship was banned from Las Palmas after the crew went on the bevvie there, I think we left with quite a few deck crew short after fighting with the police on the quay and in town. Also the baker jumped ship in Dieppie and the pantryman took ill and left the ship in Genoa. It was quite an introduction to life at sea.
