Esso Lincoln

Hi All

Mike Dale here looking for info regarding the Esso Lincoln between 06/05/1972 and 15/08/1972 when I sailed on here as Third Mate.

Reason for question is that I have just retired after 50 years at sea and I am trying to collate all the miles I sailed on all ships. The only one I seem to be missing the voyage data from is the Lincoln. Any help appreciated.
Mike Dale

Mike, seen the Esso Lincoln around the US Coast in the seventies can't recall the exact year, I may have been 1972 or 1973 .

Sam, it was not a dingbat, she was built in the early sixties had sisters as well. Did meet her in the 70s when she was trading on the US East Coast from Venezuela. Had a chat with her in the Mona's Passage once when she was northbound to Portland Maine, the mate I chatted to was from Cardiff, got not any other useful information.

Hi Mike,
Mike Irwin here, how are you? We sailed together on the Inverness and Penzance, I was on the Lincoln a couple of times in '72' on the Yankee coast, can't remember whether we were together there at all. Contact me [email protected]
Rgds,

Hi Mike,
I was on the Lincoln from 31/1/72 to 7/5/72 first trip to sea as a junior engineer. Also sailed on her for 2 more trips in 1974 and 1975.

On my initial trip Dixie (Richard) Dean was Chief Engineer and Peter Goodfellow Senior Second Eng. 3rd Engineer was a Geordie called John Swanson.
What an introduction to life at sea - shortly after leaving Portland Maine we ran into a massive storm and the low and high level alarms were going off continuously, during the night someone stuffed a rag into the siren on the plates and when the feed pump tripped out at 8am that morning no alarms worked and both boilers burnt out. We spent days drifting grinding in plugs in the damaged boiler tubes to try and get one of the boilers operational. We eventraully limped down to Puerto Rico and Dry Docked. The Esso Cardiff (sister ship) came over from Europe with her spare boiler tubes. We had a nice sojourn in Puerto Rico as the Dockyard workers carried out repairs. Regards M.K.

The first time I saw the Esso Lincoln was when she was stuck on a
rock in the Red Sea in Feb. 1965 when we went to try and get some of her cargo transferred to us and see if that would get her off the rock but to no avail. I was on the Esso York at the time as a Stwd.
The next time was when I sailed on her 18/05 til 16/07 1972 as PO Mech. Joined her in Norfolk and left in Marseilles
