I joined here with 2 other final phase Marine Cadets, Derek Gray and Johnathan Wilson after the ship suffered a major ER fire off the coast of Japan. I remember it had been a thermal oil heater (she had these instead of steam boilers) FO pipe cracked on top of the unit and cascaded down the outer casing and ignited big time! Gutted the complete funnel casing, I still have the pics!
Would love to hear form anyone that knows me or was onboard or recollects this incident.
