    Do you know a guy named David Wood? I know he went to those places, just donít know exactly when cause he talks a lot about his days on the ships. He was with the British Merchant Navy from 65-73. Iím looking for dadís old shipmates cause heís turning 70 and I have some bday surprises for yams would like to try and get in touch with old pals.

    She was a very good ship when i was on her in 67-68 for about 7 months, with good cabins, food and a great crew.
    Carrying supplies for Armed forces in Persian gulf [ lots of alcohol ] and only did about 7 ports with only 1 with a dock berth-the rest was boats to shore when we were allowed. Fantastic time despite drawbacks due to young and crazy crew.
    She was a nice ship for a first tripper.
