Golden Fountain [23-6-96 to 8-11-96] - dates are when I was onboard.
Thome Shipmanagement Singapore were operating these 2 when I worked for them in 1995-6.
Golden Stream was on time charter to K-Line & always did Arabian Gulf to Japan.
Golden Fountain was on time charter to a European company & did much more interesting runs -
Arabian Gulf to Caribbean - Nigeria to India - Arabian Gulf to Philippines - AG to S. Korea.
These were near new motor ships with European [Norwegian] Ch.Eng. & Master
+ Philippino Officers & crew.
