mv ICS Reliance - 7th January 2017

I performed a compass adjustment aboard the bunker ship mv ICS Reliance on 7th. January 2017, just prior to her refuelling Spirit of Tasmania I and Emerald Princess at Station Pier. The ship's Master very kindly allowed me to bring John Davies, a good friend of mine, along for the day.
