MV Neftegaz-62

Completed two trips on Neftegaz-62, an old Russian ship working out of the Baku area. Poor design with too much accommodation for windage and low power thruster everything was a struggle. Added to that the same type of crew as mention in the post about the Nercha made these two trips ones to forget.

Looking in my Discharge Book the stamp for this ship is named NEFTEGAZ_G2 with a No. M42049. I have no idea why this information was on the ship’s stamp, the official details are as below. It seems that at some stage a 6 was interpreted as a G so 62 became G2.
