Hello all,
I am interested in merchant ships of all types,and my main enthusiasm is reserved for steamships.I sailed as an engineer on steam turbine vessels with
Furness Withy,Brocklebanks and Fyffes.Ifinished as 2nd engineer on the
Chicanoa in 1960 but can find no mention of her apart from when she was launched and when she was scrapped! Would like to hear from anyone who sailed with these companies between 1956 and 1960

Welcome to SN from the UK Roy,

There is plenty of information, some very informed people, and a lot of amusement to be had here.

You may wish to put a bit more information about yourself in your profile (reached from the Quick Links menu from any SN screen) - it helps if members know a bit more about who they are talking to.

I can see the problem you have with Chicanoa as I couldn't find anything on the net either. However I am sure that one of our knowledgable members will be able to provide a bit more information in due course.

CHICANOA - Elders & Fyffes

Go to Gallery and under SEARCH type in CHICANOA there is a photo of her and bits and pieces by Ian Haldane and myself ( we both sailed on her at different times) CAMITO also appears on same search.
