Komata/Antonio Regidor

(Wave)​
I spent a year on the Komata just before she was slod. Have a lot of memories of her, mostly good ones. The machinery was is in good nick when she was sold. Did a lot of work on her, even had a hot smoky unit one night in Bass straight, luckly it was dead came. Never been a been a great fan of a hot unit. Went surfing on her one night, backwards a few times, even been barriered out from all from all others. Our cargo was a little liguid, well some of it and had a low flash point. Same ship, before I joined her, went on the rocks, wrong turn approaching Wellington. Ever hear of magnetic torches, dont help the compass

Komata/Antonio Regidor

I flew over from Australia with the late David Hancox and joined the Komata when she was laid up in Auckland. Dave/1st Mate and I/Master
hung over the bow and stern and painted in the new name, Antonio Regidor.

Our Filipino crew was delayed in Manila so we sailed from Auckland to Mount Maunganui
with Chief and 2nd Engineer, Eric Millroy as 2/o and Dave and I. The Pilot in both Ports were intrigued and joined in by doing the Telegraph and movement book.
