Hello together

may a story worth to read at Silvester when most of the people a ready to celebrate.

2004 I got invited by the seamans Priest in Valparaiso Mr. Asmus. He picked me up in San Antonio and showed me some places ashore. When we passed a bridge close to the port of San Antonio, where a river goes by to the pacific he told me that years ago a scandinavian vessel (He thought it was Norwegian but not 100 % sure) missed the entrance to the Port of San Antonio and ended up in the delta of the mentioned River close to the bridge. When the authorities entered the vessel they founf the complete Crew drunken - may it was the silvester night to New year. Somebody can confirm this story and may even know the name of this vessel.

Best regards
Andreas Schlatterer (Capesize) and happy new year
