Only did the one trip for BM - covering for someone on study leave I believe. Think it was 1984 or 84 and I believe the ship was sold to a Japanese company at the end of my trip. Best ship I ever sailed on and the best unmanned engine room system - if you put the engine room 'to bed' properly you almost never got a call out overnight.

Highlight of the trip was rescuing 20 survivors from a sinking vessel off the coast of Indonesia - only the top of the bridge was still above the waves when we arrived on the scene. None of them spoke English so we never discovered what happenend - they all disappeared down the gangway when we arrived in Tanjung Priok.
