Found this site looking for pictures of ships I sailed on thought it maybe a good way of contacting people I used to sail with, to see where we all ended up and how life has treated us.
I shipped out with Port line from 1972-1977ish. Worked in engine room as Donkey Greaser. Frank Buttler the gent that he was did the hiring and firing.
I have lived in NZ for the last 30years
Cheers Chris

A hearty welcome from Wales, I hope your voyage with S.N. is a pleasant one, I think you find there a grand bunch of guys, and will make you feel very welcome.If you ever need a friendly ear to bend or just a chinwag, you will always find my cabin door open.

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Chris.
Plenty of Portline lads among the crew and plenty of information knocking around the ship if you have a look.
Join in and enjoy the trip.
