found this site by clicking on a contact on ShipPlotter and it came up. I live on the Island of Portland and have found this to be great in identifying ships passing in the channel, where they are going [and subsequently learning of ports previously unknown to me]. Most of my sea time has been on grey funnel ships, but shore time has included Gib and many visits to the Falkland Islands. Good luck to all.

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire.
Plenty of Grey Funnel lads in the crew so you'll be among friends and maybe ex crewmates.
Find your way around the ship and enjoy the voyage.
