Ik arriveerde op 26 juni 1965 met de KORENIA in Singapore , en moest overstappen op
27 juni op de KREBSIA deze lag toen in dock voor reparatie , na een aanvaring met
een passagierschip. Ik heb er nog foto's van de beschadigde voorsteven en het gat in de romp van het passagierschip. Na de reparatie hebben we 3 maanden op de kust van
MaleisiA<< en IndonesiA<< gevaren tot 08-11-1965. Vervolgens op de Kust van Zuid-Afrika van 19-11-1965 t/m 10-01-1966. Daarna naar Abadan in Iran, waar we werden
afgelost op 28-01-1966 . En zijn toen met Martin Air Charter via Rome naar Amsterdam gevlogen met een DC-3 Of een DC-4 , dat weet ik niet meer. Ik heb in die tijd veel gezien en genoten .
Ik ging veel stappen met de Wachtassistent , maar zijn naam weet ik niet meer.

Kwam aan boord terwijl de Krebsia werd opgeknapt bij de NDSM in Amsterdam. Dit moet in April / mei 1971 zijn geweest. Aangemonstert voor 6 maanden, en we zijn via skandinavie, england overgestoken naar de carrabbien, brazielie, noord amerika en de oostkust van afrika. Daarna terug naar maracaibo en Curacao weer ik van boord ging en terugg naar nederland. Een fantastise tijd gehad.

03/03/2011 - 10:55 B. Elve

Ik heb in 1960 en 1961-1962 op de Krebsia en de kelletia gevaren als bediende en als wasbaas.
Reizen van 12 en 13 maanden.
Half de wereld rond.Mooie avonturen beleefd,en gage straffen gekregen.
Er was een bediende aan boord die had een kat aan boord zogenaamd en die noemde hij heatcliff.
Als het slecht weer was dan was heatcliff altijd zeeziek en moest hij kotsen en dab deed die bediende het opruimen met een miniscule klein dweiltje omdat de poes ook maar 5 cm groot was.
Hele verhalen breide hij aan elkaar.Prachtig.
Wij haddeb 1 vrouw aan boord een van de 2de machinist,een mooie vrouw hoor.
Nou als zij lag te zonnen aan bb dan lagen al de mannen ook aan bb en ging ze verkassen naar sb dan gingen wij allemaal mee hahahaha.

The Krebsia, 1964-1965

After a cruise around the world on the Willem Ruys ( her last ) of 2 1/2 months, I went to the Royal Dutch Shell office.
This was located in Shell?s new office the first ?wolkenkrabber? located at het Hofplein.
I still remember that as the day of yesterday, after having past the reception I was directed to the (third?) floor, a not to friendly fellow was situated behind a wall, and via an opening ( comparable with older banking institute) in that wall (loket) he asked me what he could do for me.
I explained that I was looking for work on a ship that my monster boekje was still valid and I left the Rotterdamse Lloyd with HONNER!
That last is easily to explain, ALL 400 plus crew got a statement that due to the sale of the Willem Ruys they were not needed (overkompleet)
Work lust (ijver), behavior (gedrag) en knowledgeable (bekwaamheid) all marked as outstanding!
Being used trips of 2 1/2 month , I asked how long the trip by Shell could take, Mr. Voogt the fellow behind the glass answered, wherever you are in the world, Shell is going to send a plane especially for you within two months!
Was I ever impressed!
That nice company Shell was so friendly and more than kind, all upfront!
To make a long story short the trip lasted 12? months, we had a serious collision in the neighborhood of Singapore, 2 dead on a France passenger ship, and we lost a ?pompman? due to a small explosion, I remember the funeral service in a small church on the outskirts of Singapore.
During our stay in Singapore we all took out advancements on our pay, and I had to work my ass off during the rest of this long trip to make up for that.
From Singapore I remember eating ape brains in a fancy place, a combination of brothel drycleaner and restaurant/bar, getting my tattoos from a fat fellow with a miss formed hand, and being drunk often.
The Krebsia was during this long-long trip at least in 1 severe storm, the waves so high/violent and short that they caused the propeller the spin dry.
As for the collision I remember standing aft near the railing on starboard side when we hit the French ship, early in the morning, after all I was het ketelbinkie and my task was to make sure the coffee tea and what have you was ready before the crew shift.
During that moment I was afraid for a explosion, after all the Krebsia was a tanker, when nothing happened in the next few minutes I* calmed down, thought about sharks, how far we were of land, and decided not to jump!
From the time in the dry-dock I remember lividly the divers who just as in a Jules Verne movie were wearing a big copper helmed with a big air hose attached, and blowing bubbles all over!
I tried often to remember were the Krebsia went during that trip, maybe some of the readers can help me out.
I remember Ceylon, Tanjung Priok, Balikpapan, and trips between Abadan and Singapore and Indonesia, I belief that at that time Shell was breaking an oil embargo or two, we as crew were summoned not to reveal were we got our cargo!
The trip ended in Abadan in what was called Persia, we boarded a DC III, that took us after a day delays to Damascus, Brindisi to Amssterdam, the last was closed due to mist and we were detoured to Hamburg, from were we took the train.
The actual flight took more than 15 hour, and the plane was half cargo half passengers, and had to repeatedly run the full length of the runway to finally take off!
The nicer memories I have from Indonesia, Jakarta friendly people and lots of nice girls, and yes I was young shy and exploring.
From all the crew I remember a few, a stoker as blind as a bat; he lived when not sailing in a pension in the Hague what a sad live!
A sailor (matroos) from Rotterdam Krooswijk, I belief his name was Sam, who thought that he was smart but never made officer I bet, he had a nasty strike to him, well that ended up me throwing a bottle of ketchup to his head, what barely missed and splattered against the wall in the mesh room, he quitted down after that and never tried to pester this young fellow!
An other fellow, skinny and always reading the bible, crying when he did not receive a letter from his wife, who was always the first to go to the ?meiden?, what a hypocrite!
All with all my time spend on the Krebsia resulted in quitting sailing, going back to school and getting myself more organized.
After this long journey I went to the same high-rise building on het Hoplein in order to get my money, of the rest I am not 100% sure, but I strongly belief that Mr. Shell himself told me that due to the money spend in Signapore and Indonesia I owned them 100 Dutch Guilders!
Needless to say that I at that moment I told him to stuff tat!
Thinking back about that time in my life how adventuress it was, the whole world to discover for a Rotterdams ketelbinkie, during a time that traveling was not as normal and frequent as it is now.
For sure the trip on the Krebsia made me a better man, I learned a lot, worked hard for almost nothing, 144 gulden a month was what we got at that time, for working long hours, no time of, an extra duties like doing the laundry for all crew and officers, it was however a experience I think back off with a big grin on my face!
All crewmember from this particular trip feel free to email me, and who knows we can arrange a reunion of some kind.
I ended up in Canada, bought my own (small) Island and married in 2007 a beautiful girl in Chengdu China, who is now studying hard to become a Lawyer,
Garoeten van Stanley and Yuke and again don?t hesitate to contact me!

I came on board the Krebsai in Singapore on october 22, 1972 as the fourth engineer, releasing mr. TH van Leeuwen. Our captain was Mr. Bakker, later relieved by captain van Schendel. Our chief engineer was Mr Spiering who was replaced later by mr Jonker. I futher remember firdt mates van Haaften en Hus, second engineers De Winter, Hendriks and the famous mr. Daniels. Second mates were Groothuis, vd Horst and Alderlink, third mates vd Voort, Kuyper (from Treschelling)and Dinks. Doolaard and Vermeulen were the 4th mates. Mr. Drooogendijk was 3rd engineer and de Wolf, vd Berg; van Steres, Bakker, Verhagen, Koole and Pier were the 5th engineers. Our sparks were Koster and Walrave Borst.
I also remember apprentices de Gooyert, Sikker, Crook !, van Kuyk and Storm.

According to my personnel logbook e left Singapore on october 23 for Yokohama with kersosene. Two days before arrival we were hit by a typhoon and after tow days of the most horrible weather I ever encountered we lost our rudder. After mayday we were tugged to Yokohama to receive a new rudder, we arrivde there on november 1.

It took the wharf to repair the rudder within 2 weeks after which we left for Singapore (Woodlands. After a few trips to th PG (Bandar Mashar)

Juni 1965; De aanvaring met het Franse passagiersschip Cambodja op de rede van Singapore en de daarna maand durende dokperiode in Singapore.
Van de aanvaring (ongeveer 07.00 locale tijd)zelf heb ik niet meer gemerkt als een
stevige schok, ik liep de 12-4 en lag net zoals dat heette te kooi.
De hele bak bas ontzet, maar dat was nog niets vergeleken bij het gat in de romp van de fransman, waar een forse vrachtauto door naar binnen had kunnen rijden.
Het meest frappante waren de bussen met haarlak die bij ons aan dek lagen.
Maar de maand Singapore is voor mij een onvergetelijke ervaring geworden.
