In the early 1960's, I was a teenager living on the Oregon Coast near Coos Bay. Our home overlooked the shipping channel. One day the Thorshall lost its steering and struck a dredge in the middle of the harbor. My family witnessed the entire event. Several men drowned and the event was written up and photographed for Life Magazine, I think the magazine was. It was an amazing sight to see, with helicopters making rescues and Coast Guard boats trying to direct fishing boats that were out to help.

When getting older, you think more about the past. I sailed on the Taria; Vasum and Kenia as a fifth eng. During my leave from the Keniia I studied with succes for my A and B1 certificate. After my leave a had to join another Shell Tanker as a fifth engineer. So no promotion. I left the Shell fleet and went to another oilcompany as a fourth ebgineer.

I too sailed with Mike Harding on this trip really strange job th we picked the limnea in brest . very short manned ship , we were to take it to loch striven near rothsay on the clyde. i was picked to go down on launch to connect fender to the ship so the other ship could come alongside, unfortunately i squshed my thumb in the process .only onboard for a month tried to finish of the huge stock of cases of lager left on board .spent the whole time aboard stripping the limnea of anything of any value and not nailed down into a barge in the loch. think we had double money to do this trip ,would of been rude to turn them down ha ha although the trip was short we had a ball

I served on Amoria(1) out of Singapore in 1968 and am now trying to build a scale model of the ship from scratch. It is beginning to look ok but I would really appreciate help from anyone with some detailed pictures of the ship so that I am able to make it more authentic.
