Ex MN 3rd Engineer

Hi Chaps,
I'm an an ex-BP 3rd Engineer.Sailed on ULCC's,VLCC's & smaller products carriers.Gave up the sea five years ago to come ashore and take up gas fitting.I'm near 50 now and boy,am I missing the sea.There's so much I long for.No hassle of getting to work,not having to deal with narks,living out of chippies and everything else which goes with todays moribund lifestyle ashore.
Unfortunately my ticket expires in July so I'm stuffed.
Bloody well enjoyed myself though(*))
