The Eulota was, after 12 years, my last ship with Shell. I joined my first Shell tanker in 1974 and paid off my last tanker in 1986. I carried on sailing until May 2001 when i finally came ashore, i didn't want to miss my daughter growing up and anyway the passion for the sea had gone. We moved to New Zealand in 2004, to Wellington and now i'm thinking of taking up yachting as a hobby!!
