yeah funny leifthor that we chart the whole moon , but forget some place`s on earth. i was 2nd engineer on merchant reefers in the 80ties. sailing worldwide with meat,fish and fruits. (seatrade) i also like to paint schips , but i cant get them so realistic as you. greetz bartjan

THANKS JOE FOR YOUR APPRECIATION. I SERVED ABOARD THIS VESSEL FOR I1/2 YEARS.OVER THE 12 YRS. THAT I SERVED THE MILITARY SEALIFT COMMAND, I SHIPPED OUT ON 7 MORE OF THIS CLASS OF SHIP. (T-AGOS/ SURTASS). I HAD BEEN RECRUITED BY THE D.O.D.,I WAS INVOLVED IN CLASSIFIED ASW OPERATIONS. LATER, I SHIPPED ABOARD T-AGS VESSELS INVOLVED IN HYPER-ACCURATE CHARTING OF THE SEABED TOPOGRAPHY, INCLUDING SOME AREAS THAT HAD NOT BEEN CHARTED SINCE CAPTAIN COOK'S SURVEYS , AND ACTUALLY SPENT 7 MONTHS CHARTING THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE.
