Hello from Scotland

26th June 2008, 20:20
Was told about this site by a new friend of mine, the crew onboard the ex fishing vessel 'Honestas' which now works as a sea angling charter vessel.
They are currently berthed here in Scrabster in the far north of Scotland, i got a good shot of them fishing a competition last week in rough weather and they want me to post it here, though looking in the gallery section which bit do i post it in? advice greatfully received (==D)

Anyway, this says introductions so a little about me ...
Am a female stevedore working the northlink ferry 'Hamnavoe' that runs between scrabster and stromness. I love watching and listening to the ships coming in and out of port. i love photography too. I'll probably not post much on the written front but on the pictures you'll see a lot.Moved up here in 2002 from hull where i worked for global shipping (the agency) working various timber, steel, paper and cocoa bean ships in hull immingham and goole.

that's enough to bore you about me (==D)

Welcome aboard from up the River Hull from Hull, Paula.
If you enable the fishing vessel gallery (see the guidelines in the notice board) that seems the best bet.
I'm sure the crew will enjoy your pictures.
Find your way around the ship and join in.
Enjoy the voyage.
