mv Triple Ever - May 2014

I was hired to perform an adjustment aboard the bulk ship mv Triple Ever (a ship I previously adjusted two years ago) upon departure from Bell Bay (Tasmania) for Melbourne. I joined the ship on May 8th. at Bell Bay but due to delays with her hold cleaning prior to loading grain in Melbourne, she anchored mid-stream in the Tamar River until sailing on the 11th. I disembarked the vessel upon arrival at the Melbourne anchorage 13/5.
