Tankers are a lot safer, the track reminds me of too many days in Typhoons off Japan!

Great link, but at least she had a bit of size to her.
The Sheaf Arrow was only around 2000 tons when we went through Biscay in the same storm which clobbered the Flying Enterprise and other ships.
We just made it in with a huge list and lots of damage.
Wish I still has the old Box Brownie photos!

Yes, she was one of Stevie's that time. Not any longer, unfortunately. She was sold in April 2010
