Hello All,
Joined some time ago and just got around to introducing myself. I had a short seagoing career 1970 to 1980. Served my time with Stag Line, 3rd mate, 2nd mate then offshore with Wimpey Marine and Seaforth Maritime. One memorable trip with Stevie Clarkes. Have been reading old Stag Line threads, I seem to be known by a couple of members, SFMILLSY, I think it was ONC 2nd mates at S Shields, you me Barry Burwood from Buries Markes two others and four Iranian
Students. GYDINIA, you were with Staggies the same time as me, does your user name refer to the slight incident the IXIA had entering that historic Polish port. I believe it resulted in an extensive dry dock in Kiel. JOHN HEWITT, I think we did one trip together Rotterdam, Baltimore loaded grain for Piraeus and Salonika where I paid off. There are probably more if I keep searching. Excellent site, excellent well informed and interesting forums.
