UK Club ship visit
- Date: 01/05/2014
Aki Tsukui and Sumit Madhu visited the LNG FRAIHA, a membrane-type LNG carrier , also known as the "Q-Flex" which until the entry into service of the Q-Max-type carrier, was the world's largest LNG carrier with a capacity of 1.5 times that of conventional LNG carriers.
Once on board, both Aki and Sumit were given a detailed tour around the vessel by Master of the vessel including the bridge, cargo control room, ships engine room, forecastle deck, galley etc.
The tour included some very interesting facts about life at sea in general from the veteran Master who was on his 91st contract having spent 38 years at sea.
