Built in '76 and demolished in '85.. that only leaves a useful life of about 10 years. That isn't much...

batillus, bellamya, prairial and pierre guillemot four sister ships, remain the largest ships ever built. contrary to popular belief the jahre viking was not the biggest, as she had been jumboised

Tranferring crude oil on S/S Drupa in Lime Bay, before joining Antifer (France). Could be on the of 1976 or the beginning of 1977. The hull painting was still new.

I was 5th engineer on the Drupa at the time. Fair takes me back!

I was on the Drupa late-1977 and we lightened the French B's a few times in Lyme Bay.
