I joined the Hinea in Singapore, as R/O, March 1974 for a 4 month trip. Eventually left in November 74 after my relief had been cancelled 3 times.

Days of long ago and so many that came before and those that went after.
Only ever met up with one of the crew ,That was the Bosun in Curacao.Have only met one former shipmate from NZSCo on this site. Every one seems to have passed on or do not have a computer.

I had that on a gas boat from Brunei to japan..worst thing was they caused panic with my parents when they phoned them after 6 months to ask why I wasn't responding to their messages for medicals and training courses..took them ages to find out that they had forgotten to pay me off..
