Dashwood

I served on the Dashwood as Third Mate when Buries Markes took her over. Joined her in Palermo where we had to live in a hotel until she was habitable. Sailed from there to Cagliari (Sardinia) for bunkers then on to Les Sept Isles for coal. A long journey from Canada to Japan plagued with breakdowns and even running out of beer. Two ports in Japan then down to Hay Point to load coal for Fos sur la Mer in Southern France. I left her there for leave before joining the La Primavera, a Gearbulker. I have some photos of the Dashwood in Hay Point and some at sea. No full profile shots though unfortunately.
