Aangezien ik bijna alle foto's van de schepen heb zitten daar ook de foto's bij van de Grand Bassa Tankers waarvoor van ommeren destijds de bemanning heeft geleverd.
Ik kan ze doorsturen na opgave van Uw e-mail adres op [email protected]

I sailed on the first W. Alton Jones, call sign ELLT, which was later renamed in Cities Service Valley Forge. I have two pages on my web site which are referring to this ship: http://www.xs4all.nl/~eeuwen/w__alton_jones.htm

Statue Of Liberty

Details of Statue of Liberty in Lloyds register 1960=
22610 gross
13994 nett
38911 dwt
707-0 length o/a
93-2 beam
38-8 draft
built 1954
I always have problems with deadweight it seems to alter from year to year
and it depends if they are using Design deadweight or active deadweight or summer/winter lines+ the draft sometimes increases/decreases.
Hope this will be of some use.
Richard

Richard, thanks for the info.
I understand there could be marginal differences which could depend on the draught and re-calculating.
Indeed there are now two figures around 39.000, but one figure of 29.000 which is also mentioned on their postcard and that is far too big a difference for reasons you mention.
Copuld it be possible that the vessel was lengthened? Unlikely during that period.

This tanker passed us in heavy fog of Gib. in 1967. We were stopped and she was service speed. She passed quite close as those on deck read her name and us below could hear the engine noise from her.

We caught up with her and were in the same convoy thru Suez a few days before the canal was closed.

The ship I was on was the SS&A "Cretic"

hi there,
I know that this ship collided in 1965 with "Andulo", I 've got to study the collision case at school and to make a dissertation about it. I don't know whether she had been badly damaged or no.
