Just like to introduce myself, although I'm not an ex seaman I have great fondness for coasters of the 50s 60s and 70s. Having grown up in the Medway towns I spent many a happy day down by the river in the 1960s particuly down at Blue Boar pier and Otterham quay, and i'd love to find a little more about the latter. My only real connection with coasters is that my Grandfather [Dave Robinson] was chief engineer with Crescent Shipping in the 1960s.
Kind regards to you all David.

I was on H.M.S. "Worcester" 54-56 and was often traipsing around the Everard Shipyard complex -- always impressed with their racing barges the "Sarah" and the "Cambria" I know they were in the Medway barge races over the years, and wondered if you had any memories of them.
