Hi Guys.
My name is Mike Pollard, AKA Offshoretinker.
I fished from Grimsby around 1972 enough to get my deckhands ticket before bailing out. I definitely fished on the Ross Genet, and the Rodney rings more than a bell.
My passion is sailing dinghys and developing my present boat for long sea crossings. To date I have crossed the Irish sea in 14 foot Wanderer and a 12 foot Tinker Traveller sailing inflatable. I am 59.
I see on the forum that GKH 151 fished on the Genet and Rodney. It's a small world and getting smaller with this wonderful tool called the internet!

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Mike.
Plenty of Grimsby fishermen and trawler enthusiasts in the crew to get to know.
You've probably had a good look round by now.
Enjoy the rest of the trip.
