Hi there everyone, this is my first post on this site. I am a retired Merchant Navy Radio Officer, I retired in 2004 but from the Offshore sector in the North Sea, but prior to that, my employers were Siemans & Co, (Radio Company) a short stay with Marconi, then direct ermployed 1965 to 1970 with B&C, then 1970 to 1983 Bibby Line, 1983 to 1988 Denholms (Various Companies within the Group) and from 1988 to 2004 Various Oil related companies on DSV's. Semi-Subs, Jack-Ups, Accommodation Barges and Oil Platforms. Yes I had a good run for my money and I enjoyed my 40 years + at sea.

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Tony.
Plenty of us around as you'll find out once you find your way around the ship.
We have a radio room deeply set in the "good old days" without the need to keep watches.
Enjoy the trip.
