Alexander,

NORDIC CHIEFTAN was sister ship to NORDIC CRUSADER which was one of my old ships:

History as follows:

NORDIC CHIEFTAN 11/1974
CAST HERON 00/1981
HELM 00/1983
INCI-S 00/1986
CHIHIROSAN 00/1988
EUROBULK CARRIER 03/1989
E B CARRIER 03/1989
COMTRADE 00/1992
BULK ATHENA 11/1993
Broken Up 08/1994

Follow these links for photographs:

As EB CARRIER - Not too good an image!

As BULK ATHENA
http://www.eurobulk.gr/partD.htm

NORDIC CRUSADER had a checkered history. She was one of the more 'interesting' ships I sailed on - nothing worked and we always said she had been built in 'Wonderland', not Sunderland!

She ended her days as MOUNT I. On 26/9/1997 she was involved in a collision in fog, off Port Dickson with the Indian Vessel ICL VIKRAMAN. The Indian vessel broke in two then sank and MOUNT I was moored in Port Dickson. She eventually made her way to Chittagong where she arrived 14/5/1998 to be broken up!

It's not quite correct to say at 1100 ft the ships were too long to ever return to the Tyne, What is correct is the fact that they could not Dry Dock on the Tyne or enter the Tyne in a loaded condition.
