Dit was mijn loopbaan bij Shell tankers.
In the early 1960's, I was a teenager living on the Oregon Coast near Coos Bay. Our home overlooked the shipping channel. One day the Thorshall lost its steering and struck a dredge in the middle of the harbor. My family witnessed the entire event. Several men drowned and the event was written up and photographed for Life Magazine, I think the magazine was. It was an amazing sight to see, with helicopters making rescues and Coast Guard boats trying to direct fishing boats that were out to help.

Write me if you want to know more.
Joined the San Gaspar in Wallsend circa 1961 as 1st trip 5th engineer. She was in dry dock.

Sorry to read of your loss. I still remember meeting you both for the first time on the 'Acavus' on the 23 Feb 1983, when I joined the vessel for my first trip in command.

Happy New Year everyone and all th best.
Happy New Year Everyone. I served on Velutina, Naninia, Tenagodus,Tagelus, Nuculana,Velletia, all in the early 1950's as a Deck Apprentice. I am still in touch with two mates, Dave Richardson and Jim Pemberton. I am 80 now, I wonder how many shipmates are still alive. Glyn Howell
