That Joule had the distinction of leaking.... she leaked salt water into the ballast tanks and then doubled the effect by leaking, in a more exciting fashion, from the ballast tanks into the containment space - a wholly more interesting idea as there was no (quick) means of getting the water out and it was a race to see if we could get the salvage pump in and working before the cargo tank gently floated off its chocks.kev said:cheers for that, the one I willknow will be the ex Havgas.

the attached link is to the 1972 built Joule, pictured March 89,so it seems likely to be the one you seek?wsumg04 said:Ah the joule, music to my ears.I need to find a picture of this ship, so if anyone has one can they please post or send me a copy that I can put up on line.I had a very happy memory of the front of the housing being painted purple by two AB's while they were stoned in bremen in 1982.Fun times indeed!
