Great memories of life on board the Hinea. Delivering AvTur to Cam Rham Bay in Vietnam.
I did a 'man's run'; stayed on board for 18 months.
Joined in Djibouti, hove to for 2 days in either the Red Sea or the Indian Ocean, then tramped to Singapore, then to Sydney, up to Yokohama (Summer to winter (really cold in Yokohama); Sydney, Yokohama, Port Moresby, Singapore. Wow it was just excellent.

Hinea was my first trip. l sailed with a group of lads from Liverpool - what a great bunch of characters. Looking back they took me under their wing as a raw ninteen year old thanks, thanks to all you scousers great memories.

De ?Noord Holland" van Bureau Wijsmuller uit IJmuiden leverde een zuiger af te Barbados en vanuit Barbados werd koers gezet naar Boca Chica bij Cartagena, waar de Shell tanker ?Hinea" aan de grond zat. Op 7 juli 1958 arriveerde de ?Noord Holland" bij de strandingsplaats van de ?Hinea".

9 juli 1956 was de ?Hinea" op eigenkracht vlot gekomen en vertrok de ?Noord Holland" naar Curaqao.

In een oude krant heb ik dit bericht gevonden, nu is wel de vraag klopt dit bericht is er iemand die dit kan bevestigen ?
