M/S Hansa Liberty


Finally I received my certificate of competency as navigational watch officer and my first ship to work as such one was the container vessel "HANSA LIBERTY". She is a geared 2478 teu full container ship of 207 m length over all. The vessel is manned with a crew of 22 from 6 different nations: German, Polish, Croatian, Romanian, Montenegro and Filipino.

The  photo shows me during cargo watch. As you can see I have a lot of fun doing this. Well, at least most of the time. As long as there are no damaged containers, wrongly declared dangerous cargoes or other problems to mend.  We worked on a liner service between the Far East and the Middle East calling the ports: Pusan, Shanghai, Singapore, Chiwan (Hongkong), Port Kelang, Khawr Fakkan, Jebel Ali (Dubai), Karachi and Nhava Sheva (Mumbai).
