We lost three of our anchors as I remember 1 bow anchor 1 spare anchor which fell off the deck mounting during the night and the rear river anchor in the Mississippi But when anchored in Santos (for repairs to the missing bulbous bow which had been removed by an ice flow sailing through the ice field to Botwood in Newfoundland) the last anchor had a problem being raised....only to find that it had picked up another in the harbour. Many more memories

Shell parted company with this ship not that long after I paid off on a stretcher. Hearsay has it that the Superintendent commented that 'she was no longer compatible with the companies safety policy'.
