This was my first trip to sea as a 17year old.Joined in Rotterdam and after a trip to Genoa,we spent Christmas in Walvas Bay. On Hogmany while passing St.Halina the engine blow up,and we had to fight a nasty engineroom fire.We won in the end and after four days of drifting,the engineers managed to restore a bit of power and we limped to Curacao where we paid/off and vessel went to drydock.Will never forget Chief/Steward Bill Cowan from Aberdeen standing on top of main engine,in shorts and teeshirt hosing down fire.
