I did the last two trips down the Brazilian coast in 1977, before she was sold to the Greeks, she was a good ship, brilliant cook who was destined for the docks in Tilbury.

Did the last two trips down the Brazilian coast before she was sold to the Greeks in 77. Fantastic cook who was destined for the docks in tilbury. A serious waste of talent, the man was brilliant.
