To all friends of Mr. Fred
from mv "Euro Squall"

good day,
all friends of Fred!

This is a short report about his time on our beautiful lady Euro Squall:

Euro Squall - Fred just joined the crew

Freddy lived here almost one month.
He joined vessel in Brunsb├╝ttel on 29/07/2010
and left in Felixstowe on 21/08/2010

He likes this job. As we don't have 3rd officer,
Freddy accepted to become this rank and occupied third officer's cabin.
He is a very clever young fellow, who constantly improves his level.

Fred gives full ahead

Sometimes, when vessel sailed in bad weather
conditions, Fred even was on bridge round a
clock, with a little rest in dangerous cargo

Fred on the bridge

He enjoyed the trip on our vessel and our trade area

We had eight ports :
Hamburg, Rotterdam, Lisbon,Leixoes,Felixstowe,
Teesport,Gothenburg and Aarhus , means two weeks round trip for last
seven years.

As I have pilot examption certificates in seven ports, including portugal,
and do job without pilots, I used Freddy
together with chief officer to assist me
while berthing/unberthing.

Fred was very interested in assistance
on bridge,while approaching and leaving the ports.
He also cleaned his cabin,watched TV a lot,
became friend with all officers and staff.

Fred's new friends - The crew of Lady Euro Squall

However he prefered to stay on bridge, during barbeque parties, because
he wanted to keep his figure strong- he had his private diet- our super
cook- philipino guy-jonel
prepared it for him.

3rd officer Fred

Our vessel, having german owners, works for K-Line , as a feeder
container ship and we try to make everybody happy...

Fred also likes too much to go ashore. he prefered doing it alone, but
i did not accept.He was dying to make a lot of photos and also he liked pretty girls.

Fred's favourite girl

Many times, when we stayed at night in Portugal, he asked me to let him
go to night clubs but I refused. But last time he really missed the girls !
That is why he finally took agreement with our friend at Felixstowe
and Denholm agent Mr. James Day to take him off and to send to one of
the cruise ships now.

Fred and Master

We said "good bye" to each other, but Freddy promissed after one month
on passenger vessel to come back just for
one day at Felixstowe and to show me the photos and to tell, how he
spent the time on cruise ship, where Mr. James Day
deliver him now.

The most important thing:

We became friends

our vessel,all my crew and me,
we like Fred a lot and we wish him a
safe voyage.

with best regards,
on behalf of the crew
master Capt. Oleg Stebnovsky
