Ships peggy/mess boy in 1968. Unluckiest ship I sailed on. Had an officer die when deckhand was cutting his hair. Someone got bitten by a dog ashore so had to have rabies jabs. I had 2 ulcers come up on my wisdom teeth, really painful.

Although I did not sail on hemactra the name has stayed with me since 1965 when I was 4th engineer on a trident tanker Maloja,on charter to shell.We were passing from pacific to Atlantic and in the Panama canal had to take the cargo off Hemimactra due to extensive bow damage sustained in a collision with I believe was lock gates.She was bound for ancorage and winter was almost upon us.During the transfer operation one of the maloja crew members decided to jump into the canal and the chief officer went in to rescue him but he got into difficulties when the crewman began to struggle so I made the decision to assist in the rescue and in the event all went well so Hemimactra remains in my memory.

we were on this ship for 13 and half months. Billy Billingsley and Tiny the Messman were my best mates and we had some memorable runs ashore in Curacao and almost every other port we called at.I was only a silly youth and I owe apologies to Chris Self
