Pushing the infamous “Conqueror” South with fair seas on a delivery was quite a delight, considering she just came off the hard after 6 months of trial and tribulation for the owner. Seems after a mishap caused by the shipyard and the yard didn’t won’t to take responsibility at that point, the owner took action and did most of the repairs himself. Well-done! with the new planking, keel and stabilizers repaired, we got the big Caterpillars fired up and ready to steam. After leaving the harbor and heading out, she was a dream at sea. I hope to get the chance to take command of the fine ship again.
just take a look at that sunrise!
