You can see the Globtik London on Auker Visser’s site “Supertankers” http://supertankers.topcities.com/id69.htm. and then when you are there you can look at the Globtik Tokyo also, by clicking on the ulcc-tankers link

I sailed with a couple of lads off these vessels, Davy Burns, Sunderland & Billy Potts, Newcastle. Cap't West was teaching at South Shields College in 92. I still see Davy now & again,he is now a cook offshore.

Do a gallery search for "globtik" on the SN website - it will bring up at least 3 photos including mine:-

Hi Ken,

I sailed on them both from 1976 onwards until they went under the Japanese flag, as Second Mate. I've got a few photos at home including some of the lads (one memorable one of George Simpson Ch Eng - from Southport - doing his party piece of drinking a beer while standing on his head!) At the moment I'm in Kakakhstan, but when I get back home I'll see what I can dig out.

I remember many of the names - I seem to recall another Chief Engineer called Ken but the family name escapes me. I have kept in touch periodically with John Latka (Chief Mate on the big ones) and Malcom George (Second Mate). I would like to know what happened to Pete Mills.

I sailed with a Third Engineer who according to a magazine article my wife spotted, is now inside for murdering his wife on St Anne's beach, (I'm not saying his name here just in case I got it wrong!)

Kieth Marsh was a Chief Steward - last I heard was that he was running a chippy down south.

A Bosun (CPO officially), Frankie Cobb was a real diamond - he helped me out immensely when I was promoted to Chief Mate on the Windsor a couple of years later.

Who could forget "Bushy and Potts"?

Could go on all day - they were great ships and a lot of good shipmates.

Take care,

Paul.

I spent a couple of very enjoyable years on the Globtik Tokyo and London, I also spent a less enjoyable time on the Venus!
I sailed as a junior engineer from 77 to about 79, when both of the big ships were handed over to the japanese.
I would like to make contact with anyone who remenbers me, a long time ago I know, but I do remenber, Jim Smith Chief Engineer, and Wally Bennet, Junior Engineer, Regards

Globtik

I sailed as 2/0 on both the London and Tokyo in the 70's also a trip on the Venus with T West. Thing's I remember during those times are:-

people & events I Remember :-
John Latka:- I remember him doing a Flintstones routine for a fancy dress night.
Keith Marsh:- Compare at a "Take Your Pick" show in crew bar. Also attended my wedding.
T Bags & Bushy & Crew Bar :- The Legionaires song in crew bar and people waving white tissues.
Cpt McClean.
Cpt Sadler, & his wife Trish who always sailed with him.
The Cat :- Crew once dyed it pink.
The Dog :- Used to drink beer in bar, and had it's own lifejacket.
The Agent in Kagoshima Ho-San, and times ashore at hotel in Kagoshima.
Marshall an Engineer.
A Sparky :- He used to appear at fancy dress do's in fantastic costumes, appeared once as Hitler and also once as a famous old cricketer.
The nuclear powered USS Thruxton taking off an Engineer in Indian Ocean, who was suffering from a head injury.
Parting of the SBM mooring rope on Globtik Tokyo in Gulf ,also parted loading hose.
The Big "T" teashirts.
Calling past Christmas island on a slow, slow, trip to Japan.

I've a few pictures somewhere of those days.

LMAO!!! That's hilarious. Although nowdays, PETA or somebody would try to nail you guys for animal cruelty or some such thing. I remember seeing a picture of Globtik Tokyo in National geographic and thinking it was just the coolest thing ever, to my 7 year old self. It's amazing, and kind of sad that that ship didn't even last 15 years. She probably had quite a bit of life left in her at the end

My father sailed on both in the 70's, Norman Coyne, and I have heard the stories of the pink cat, the appearance of the Thruxton and a whole lot more. He emigrated to Australia in the mid 80's but returned to England about 10 years ago. If anyone would like his contact details feel free to get in touch with me and I'll pass them along.

Hi Ken,
I sailed as Junior Eng on the Tokyo and London from about 77 and was on the London when we handed over to the Japanese on the last British flag voyage.
I also have good memories of the bid ships, although I also had the misfortune to sail on the Venus as well. I have some photos, but only those which are on the web anyway.
I hope this helps, let me know what you think

Regards
Bill Rhatigan

Cpt Sadler, & his wife Trish ended up living in Ras Tanura (actually Najmah - the Aramco expat housing complex) - Ian Sadler became a Juaymah pilot where I also worked alongside him. Both ships were frequent visitors to Juaymah/Ras Tanura. It was sad to see these grand ships once they passed to the Japanese - the deck maintenance fell off and cosmetically they declined.

Stan Pascoe

Hi, Im trying to trace my grandfather, he was called stanley pascoe, Who I believe was a chief engineer or even a super for globtik tankers back in the 70's.
Due to my Grandparents divorcing, I have never met him. I would like to find any information that could lead me to find him.
Many Thanks
Janine Pascoe

Seemore,

See Auke Vissers site for photographs of the two Globtik ULCCs :-

http://supertankers.topcities.com/id57.htm
http://supertankers.topcities.com/id69.htm

The photographs show the funnel marking quite clearly.
