More importantly John, don't forget the fridge! (Thumb)Couple of questions ;
Why was she carrying timber from Rotterdam to St.Johns. Normally it was
the other way around.
Was 2nd.mate on the Troll park 1971 and certainly do not remember that
they were "primative"inside (presume you are talking about the accommodation). She was certainly the only ship I ever sailed in where the 2nd.mate had a seperate bedroom. The accommodation was superb for the early '70's.
Sailed on the River and Park and can't but agree John with all you say however the car decks were another matter with problems every time they were moved. The idea was excellent but in practice they were a pain.Jeez , you're right Ray, Also the first time I ever had a fridge as 2nd.Mate.
Note that we have still not got DJM's enthralling story about Malcolm
Thorpe and the extra Volvo.
I thought the Troll ships were great ships for their time. At least they had
hatch covers that worked !!.
