Fascinating! A monster. Not a derogatory word. Sheer size I mean. Wow! I used to see them, those huge ships, but I could'nt imagine what life was like aboard them. I did once read that the deck crowd had roller skates to get about on. True?
Life aboard her probably no different to life aboard a 12,000 tonner. Steel deck under one's feet, blue sky above, green or blue sea holding you up. Sea life, that's how it was and probably still is.

Hi,

The "Moscliff" that became "FPSO Brazil" is another vessel than the one pictured at the top. Both the VLCCs were owned by Norway´s Mosvold group.

The first "Moscliff" (pictured in the first post above) was built at Sumitomo in 1975. Her name history was: Moscliff; 1985-Actor; 1988-Jarabella; 1991-Ambra Blue; 1993-Argostoli Bay; 1996-Dolphin 41. She was scrapped in 1996. More details here: http://supertankers.topcities.com/part-2/id224.htm

The second "Moscliff" was built at AG Weser in Germany in 1972. Her name history is Esso Freeport, Esso Saba, Moscliff, FPSO Brazil. More details here: http://supertankers.topcities.com/part-2/id82.htm

Best regards
