From the collection of Capt. Per Jespersen

A tanker "hoses up" for loading at the Sidon terminal. A 12-in. rubber hose connects the ship's manifold with the 12in. submarine hose, 200 ft long, which in turn connects with an under-water crude-loading pipeline. Most berths are also equipped with another submarine pipeline and hose for loading bunkers.
