Welcome to the crew, Peter.
Plenty of us aboard so join in.
I'm sure you've found the radio room by now.
No watchkeeping just enjoy the trip.

Welcome to the site Peter.
If Zealand was Henry Robb built circa '55 for Curries of Leith, spent my lunch breaks watching your radio room being fitted out.

Hello Peter, Nice to see a namesake on the site although I have been conspicuous by my absence from all sea faring stuff this year ... have to get back in again and your "shout" may have done the trick ! ... welcome to a great site. Cordially, Keith
