The Hinnites was my first ship when I was just 21. Although I ended my career with shell over 34 years ago , I still have dreams and fond memories of those times. The Hinnites for me was a good ship with lots of character and made by craftsmen. The engineers on board were my mentors and I took much of my new found skills with me into later life and an on-going career in water treatment.

Joined the Hinnites on the River Tyne as an 18 year old Engineer Apprentice in Sept 1961 and 10 months later had sailed right round the world on her, visiting many countries I didn't even know existed. What an experience.
