mv Dareen

On Thursday 8th November 2013 I boarded the livestock carrier mv Dareen at Geelong, after she arrived from Indonesia, to service the magnetic compass. On Friday 9th  I reboarded the vessel before she sailed for Tianjin, China in order to perform a compass adjustment in Port Phillip Bay. We sailed at 2350 and I disembarked the ship by pilot launch off Queenscliff at 0430 on Saturday morning.
