I sailed on this ship as second Engineer when she was the Kuland. Owned and run by Safmarine; chartered back to Shell. Beautiful accommodation and we went all over the world to model refineries.

The dates of my time on Otina are rather a guess, but I remember when the Chief Engineer took the HP Turbine offline with a bypass: the noise in the engine room was horrific. There were so many 'extra' people in the engineroom that we experimented with having a day off a week. It was a disaster because all there was to do was get drunk; and we did. On the same voyage we put into Liverpool (very unusual) and they turned her round very very quickly.

Otin was my second Shell ship. I joined he in Rotterdam (not sure of the year but she was practically brabd new) with a group of other officers. She had a problem with her HP turbine in the Red Sea and we put into Aden for an inspection. Not a very happy ship as I recall.
