"I Joined the m.v. NINA BOWATER on December 18th, 1968 at Tilbury Docks as 3rd Engineer Officer.  The ship was on the North Sea run to Risor in Norway where we loaded paper for the Bowater factory in Northfleet.   I recall being very cold on that run with some rough seas to contend with on my first trip.  As we were in ballast we sure bobbed around like a cork in a bathtub.  This was my run until the end of March of 1969 when I returned home on leave until May 7th, 1969 when I again rejoined the ship.    This trip was again in ballast to Cornerbrook in Newfoundland to load newsprint for ports in the Great Lakes and also for ports down the eastern seaboard.  I enjoyed my trip up the Great Lakes as far as Chicago which also included a transit through the Welland Canal.
 
We then did a trip to Alexandria in Virginia where I was fortunate to have time off for a visit to Washington D.C.  A later trip took us down to Cape Canaveral where we were able to take in a visit to the Space Center which will always remain in my memory.
 
I spent a total of two and a half years on the "NINA" which was the happiest time of my sea service. " Edit Text
