Question for you Spowiednick - on the large container ships you sailed on with beams closer to 48 meters, did you have to carry any ballast during normal service?

Thanks buddy … so really not much difference from the 1st gen post panamax vessels (40 m beam). Fortunately in my experience we had sufficient cargo both ways and minimal to zero ballast.
Far cry from the narrow bodies … always carrying 3-4k ballast in the DBs. Slow death of the tanks.
PS: Lower aft peak tank was locked in treated fresh water.
PPS: No SW ballast on the moored FPSOs.
