    Ships as we knew them, 18 sticks and a jumbo, not much different from the WWII Empire vessel design, few more sticks and accommodation, and gravity davits instead of winding McLachlan, probably a bit faster too........... memories

    Keith- please go back to the beginning of the thread and see my reply;-without putting it in six-inch high capital letters therein I said it is the PANDO STRAIT.

    I was at sea 20 years,and have been researching ships,especially accidents and incidents and their safety implications for another 20+. Suggest you try not to involve yourself in every post ?-it can be extremely tedious and/or irritating to read and is usually a complete waste of your efforts,and the site server space.
    Regards

    Quite Right Ivan,but it's not evident to anybody just 'skimming through' a post at unearthly times of the night , and to a non-seafarer the name significance (P and O) would not register. It would be like a hermit monk not knowing what a 'strapless bustier' was.That was a cheap,quick made up analogy,but you get my drift......Listen.gif

    I would say that Joe (#4) was more than satisfied with the information supplied and no need for inspector Clueso
