01/25/2005 - 15:20 I was pleased to see all the shell tankers that i had served on from 1977 to 1987 my first being the Lanistes as a very green deck boy, i rejoined this ship another three times. I then served on the Acavus twice, the second time was the most memorable and the coldest as we were the first shell tanker to go to Frobisher bay in the Baffin islands carrying a cargo for canadian shell out of quibec. if any of my crew mates who were on the acavus at the time, please contact me it would be great to hear from you. The other vessels i sailed on were the Alinda twice, palaudina,palium three times, Lapeta,Ebalina,Eburna twice and the Isocardia twice.I still think about my sea going days and often wonder where every body ended up, some like me opted for voluntary redundancy in 1987, Andy richards an AB who was on the Eburna doing the carribean run if you read this please get in touch. last of all to those lads i had the pleasure of sailing with we worked hard and played hard. Best days of my life. hope to hear from you soon. Hagar
