Trojan Star- did a one off banana run Sheerness to Jamaica and back in 1977 before going back to Shields for 3rd phase. She carried three third engineers, such was the reliability. Awful ship. Scavenge fires daily, regularly came back minus a few legs, was a pig to bunker and rolled like a bastard no matter the weather. One guy killed in an engine room fire the trip after I left. Dangerous ship when bunkering and that is what caused the blaze - trying to share a BA set in a CO2 filled ER I believe is what killed the engineer.
