Hi all,

My good friend Tony Jones at Rhiw.com pointed me in the direction of your most interesting site, which has already given me a few hours of pleasure - well done.

Currently I live in Hobart, Tasmania, where I am employed by fast craft builder Incat.

I grew up in the Irish port of Dun Laoghaire where the ferry operations of British Rail, Sealink and later Stena Line became a firm interest. Some would say I spent much of my time in Holyhead - this being thanks to the warm welcome I always received from the officers and crews of various ferries who were only too happy to nuture my interest in all things maritime.

Regards to all,

Justin

Thanks guys.

I would quite like to share some stuff on BR/Sealink ferries. Do you think there is scope to create an area for these within the list of companies available rather than within the generic Ferries folder?

Justin.

Wouldn't take it as a compliment as Professionals are often incompetant LOL

Hi again Zelda, but perhaps I could be considered professional since my latest book was published in November! You may have seen the link to it on one of my websites!!

I think we are pretty thin on the ground Justin but like Bondi Junction in Sydney there seem to be plenty of Kiwis. I dunno they come over here and win all our best horse races, humiliate us in the Americas Cup and even teach us the odd lesson in rugby. Fortunately they had the good grace earlier this year to lie down and let us whitewash them at cricket.

In all of the above my tongue was planted firmly in my cheek. (Eat) (Eat)
