Hi am David and have always had an interest in ships. I worked on the Ferries and pilot boats on the Thames in the 50's.
I have been looking at the various companies and their ships. I would like to make up my own presentations of shipping lines with a picture solely for my own viewing and as I am retired it is now a hobby.

Good ship in its' day - I sailed on the Cretic for a year or two/ Twin Doxfords' and the electrics were all direct current, so plenty of work.
