The tiny ship that went across on a couple of voyages to South America was the Voorloper (ii) IMO7116937 - a RO-RO-which is one of those illustrated above.. They needed a relief Chief Engineer with a Diesel 'ticket' and he had fairly recently retired from Safmarine and was available. Still have some old slides he took in Buenos Aires where they were docked.I was 2/O mid eighties for a year. When border hit the Caisson and Mkuze ended up being the Ceylon Hilton. Oh yes, trip across to Brazil on a tiny ship (range?) and the Tugela sold. I could never understand why I was on the Cargo ships and not Tankers. Turned out my year sorting out wether to live out there was a nono, mainly because the kids education would have been disrupted. Now, of course, it looks like the right choice. My wifes family are having hell with the electricity and drought.
