Just seeing my last name on a book caused me to buy this epic story of the giant oil tankers by South African journalist Noel Mostert. It is a classic. I am glad I bought and read it and recommended it to my family members, several of whom have copies and have enjoyed reading it.
Very interesting to read about the lives of seamen and learn more about VLCC.
An excellent work on oil tankers and ocean shipping in the 1970s, based around a trip as a passenger on a P&O supertanker.
Brilliant portrayal of the lives of seafarer onboard these VLCCs and ULCCs.It was fun in those days to be at sea. You worked hard and enjoyed as well.Life onboard was one of bonhomie and enjoyment
