Can you elaborate on this please? Which company are you referring to? I know about an entire lot of steel bought from India, exported to Singapore (loyang) being rejected for poor quality after re-export to Norway while rebuilding one of our ships.
Cheers

Read through all the posts. Great to see so many sailors here at Tbhp. Here I am with my set of pics. I m a toddler compared to the wealth of experience of some sailors here. But my contributions to the thread neverthless.

These are from my first and second vessel, a dedicated Phosphoric acid carrier with SCI. The pics are not of very high quality though.

I regret not coming across this thread earlier. I have been unwittingly posting my photos (from my sailing career, among other photos) in the "official non-auto" thread! So, some of the photos that follow have been posted on that thread earlier. Mods, please accept my apologies
