mt Ardmore Seafarer - Crib Point

I was hired to attend the product tanker mt Ardmore Seafarer at Crib Point, Westernport, Victoria from 18/10/2013 to 20/10/2013 as the representative of Bernhard Schutle Shipmanagement (Cyprus) while management was transferred from Schulte to Univan Ship Management Ltd. This involved a full crew change with the multinational officers and Filippino crew being replaced by Indians. My main job was to remove ship's articles, logbooks and other documents for shipping back to Cyprus and ensure certain other items such as ship's stamps and emails were destroyed.
