Like Steve Fisher I also worked my passage back to Burnie, Tasmania, via Sydney from Longbeach in April 1983. Same friendly captain. My days were spent chipping and painting the pipe passages with Francisco. Another workaway was Rolf from Karlsruhe, Germany, who spent his days cleaning in the, not so cold, engine room. Pleasant evenings were spent watching the sun set from the bow. It was a very memorable experience.
I worked my passage on this vessel as a "workaway" from Long Beach California to Sydney in February 1984. It was called the MV Lillooet back then, skippered by Capt Klaus Schlingplasser. Great memories of 18 glorious days sailing across the Pacific, smooth as glass all the way!
Cheers, Steve Fisher
i worked on this vessel as a shore based reefer technician (Celsiunator, Adelaide & Melbourne)) in the 1970's and early 80's when this ship was on the padline run. )Pacific Australia Direct Line). |
