Beleive me, I can't remember
where we went after Brofjorden but it dosen't seems important today, not very important anyway.
M/T Tärnsund with M/T Forsvik in Brofjorden.
I was on Forsvik as 2nd Officer 1993.
Thanks to Mr Jan Brügge, pilot at Brofjorden for photo.
After 1 week at anchor outside Middlesbrough waiting for loading orders we got orders to load in Fredericia. It was timefor me to go home in Fredericia.
We should load at Shell terminal in Fredericia. The terminal is located at the northern entrance to Little Belt. Normally there is an eastgoing current of 0,5 - 2 knots at the jetty. Sometimes the current is up to 4 - 5 knots, making it hard to get alongside or leave the jetty.
The refinery is located 7,5km from the terminal so there is often a line clearance of several cbm required from the refinery.
I signed off in Fredericia 26th of August together with the Chief Engineer and 1 AB. When we
Shell terminal in Fredericia.
arrived to Fredericia the jetty was occupied by another ship so we had to drop anchor. Typical when it's time to sign off.
We left from Fredericia around 1700 and after leaving the Chief Engineer in Ängelholm and the AB at his home in Gothenburg I was home around 2130 after returned the rental and chasing a taxi Saturday night in Gothenburg. I was in a hurry because my friends where in Marstrand with their sailing boat. My friend had his birthday so they told me there was a party in full swing. But I was too tired (I'm getting old) after the trip. But they still talk about the record breaking trip from Fredericia to Gothenburg.
