Sailed on Gosforth, Holmside's sister ship as Third Mate/carpenter 6/1/72 to 27/3/72. Glasgow to Baie Comeau light ship then to Port Canaveral with newsprint then back to Baie Comeau (-45f) and then to Glasgow with newsprint. On the return trip to Glasgow, we got stuck in the ice off Sept Iles for 4 days. Freed by ice breaker and then had to call at St Johns Newfoundland to have the propellor cropped to stop the vibration. Never been so glad to get off a ship.
Maybe this post should be in the Burnetts thread?
