Here we have a not so clear photo of Dover, taken from the Norwegian M/T Hallanger in 1972.
We had left Antwerp and when we got to the North Sea the weather had deteriorated and it was so rough that the Belgian pilot could not get off the ship so we took him to Dover were the sea was a lot calmer an
I took this photo a couple of days after the main Typhoon had passed, we were on route from Japan to Panama in 1972. During that storm it was only the second time in 10 years at sea that I was more than a little worried.

This photo was taken from the monkey island while we were loading chemicals in Puerto Rico.
I beleive the M/t Hallanger at 34,000 tns was the second biggest chemical tanker (converted from crude carrier) in the world in 1971, I served on her for 9 months 1971-1972.
