MV Jonwi. Rolf Wigands Rederi Bergen


The crew on MV Jonwi made her the best scandinavian sportship of the year 1966. At that time we held the Nordic record in 4 x 100 m, the record was 44,6. 
The ships crew was good in all kinds of sport, football, running, high jump, long jump, weight lifting, swimming etc. And of course, the master was very proud. But to get a whole crew up for training about 4 times a week, was thanks to the chief officer at the time.  He held a few records himself. Only after I signed off Jonwi, I realised that I should have stayed onbord longer.  Thinking back on all ships I have worked on, Jonwi was one of the best.  But the trade Europe - Persian Gulf was not very exciting.
The company R. Wigands was togheter with Westfal Larsen very good companies to work for.

Trojan Service. Zapata Inc. New York

When Zapata tried to get a strong hold of the supply business in the North Sea, Trojan Service was moved from Nigeria to Great Yarmouth.
She was rebuilt in Spain for service in the North Sea, but she showed to be helpless. Without bowthrusters, self steering etc
At that time we had to anchor and then go astern to the platforms to moore. We had a dutch skipper at the time I was on, and he handled the vessel elegantly. But never the less, the boat was too old, too small and useless for the North Sea.
Trojan Service was one of the first supplyboats ever built.
MV Trojan Service. Zapata Inc New York. Trojan Service (Nigerian service) was built in Texas/Louisiana.

After about 1 year in the North Sea, I signed off Trojan Service in Stavanger late summer of 1972. After a few weeks at home I signed on Team Augwi.

MV Trans Hav. Seatrans Bergen

I signed up with a small coaster, designed for car transport from
East Norway to North Norway. The time on "Trans Hav" was cut short due to capsizing when unloading a heavy vehicle in Oslo. The ship sank and three of the crew, including myself had to be picked up from the iced sea.

After the accident with Trans Hav, I started thinkng about a job on a drilling or production platform in the North Sea.
Now was the time to start working offshore.
More about my 35 years offshore will be in the offshore chapter.

MV Trans Hav. Seatrans Bergen Buidt by Einar S.Nilsen Harstad Norway 1974

Trans Hav capsized in Oslo Dec.1974


The vessel was unloading heavy machinery. One of the crew was told to close the sidedoor, but found this not necessary.(Or misunderstood the order)

The vessel was fully loaded with fertilizer, so there was not much freeboard from the sidedoor to sealevel.

When the boom came over the side with the heavy load, the vessel was filled with water, and very quick turned over.

We were three men onboard. The mate managed to escape through the door on the bridge wing. One AB sailor escaped through a hatch in the cabineroof. He slightly injured a foot, as he nearly got trapped. I was in the galley preparing lunch and was wondering what happend as all the plates and cuttlery started falling down from the shelves. I managed to get out on deck through the door on the sea side. All three had to swim through ice to the shore side.
We were met by ambulances and fire team, but we told them we were okay.
