In 1970 I was part of a team from the University of Glasgow Department of Naval Architecture that performed as set of shallow water sinkage and trim measurements on the Marinula as part of a wider study the effects on ships with high block coefficients.

We boarded the Marinula heading North from a pilot boat out of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and set up our measuring equipment crossing the Bay of Biscay. To make our measurements we deployed a 10m 'bowsprit' from which we made ultrasonic distance measurements ahead of the bulbous bow onto the water surface to measure bow sinkage and a micromanometer to measure ship trim while under way. An accurate ship's log was deployed as we entered Milford Haven where the actual measurements were made. As I recall the Marinula was typical of many tankers trimming up to 2m by the bow in shallow water when running at 15kts or so, certainly something to bear in mind when entering or leaving port when the state of tide meant the under-keel clearance was marginal!

Although it now 50 years or so ago I'd like to thank once again the captain and crew of the Marinula who helped us on board and made the whole trip a very pleasant and productive experience.

When I was a teenager my sport was sailing, in that time I lived in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Gran canaria - Canary Islands), my birthplace. I used to train, first with my Optimist Class boat and later with my Europe Class International boat (Moth Europe).

I remember very clearly a long time (many months) with the Marinula anchored out of the Las Palmas Port because the tanker had an average with the propellers and they had to wait for a new propeller or so.

It was for us very exciting sailing from the Nautic Club into the port until The Marinula, which seemed to be anchored not very far, but... it was so massive that it really was very very far and we needed a long time to sail around it and return port.

I also remember that The Marinula acted for us as a enormous wall stoppA?ng the wind so when we was leeward of The Marinula the strong wind was suddenly completely calm and it was very easy to capsize!

My greetings for all the people working on board The Marinula in that time!!!
