The vessel had been converted to carry Lub Oil and the tank heating coils were welded stainless steel a welcome change from my experience on the Helix. My memory of the one voyage from Rotterdam to Curacao was the conditions in the engine room. The main engine was a Werkspoor and there were so many leaks on the exhaust system the atmosphere was impossible to bear. The E.R. Log Book was kept in the engineers change room and watch keeping consisted of fast dashes through the engine room and out into fresh air before choking on the fumes. If memory serves me right the Main Engine had been salvaged from the wreck of a vessl sunk during WW2 and had never recovered.
