And I just signed of CT Sun a few days before. But the 2nd Officer on Tärnfjord had jumped the ship in Gothenburg the same morning and they needed a 2nd Officer within a couple of hours. They told me it was just for a week. I'm a nice gay so I said yes. I signed on 2 hours later in Skarviks hamnen, Gothenburg.
When I came down to the ship I meet one AB from Rankki. He was working on the jetty now. He had given up his life as a sailor.
We left Gothenburg for Luleå in a sunny afternoon. We had a nice trip to Luleå where we discharged our cargo.
We returned to Brofjorden and I signed off at arrival to Brofjorden 8 days after signing on.
It was a Friday when i signed off in Brofjorden and we had a sign off party at my place when
they called from Stolt and asked if I could go and work for them.
- When? I asked.
- We will send you to a chemical tanker safety course in Warsash.
- Then you can sign on in September, they continued.
I said OK and that I had time to go on 1 more ship before the course in Warsash. Then they said no and that they would start to pay my salary from today.
Well, we continued with our party (all night long)
