Hello everybody :thumb: ,

Iam new on this site , and I wanted to introduce me :

My name is Joachim K. , I started 1962 with my sea-career , and Iam still going strong . the last 20 years as master on freighters all over the world , but since 1999 as master on a ferry in the "Kiel-Kanal" ( Family reasons ) . 18 months to go and then I'll retire , perhaps I'll later on make some short trips . My special interests are freighters , built between 1950 and 1970 , I call them real ships , because I have sailed on them .

Bye :thumb:

Hi Jocho!
Good to have you on the site.
It has only just recently got rolling so we hope it will expand and you will have an opportunity, perhaps, to come across some old shipmates.
This is the big advantage of having an interactive site!
For other freighters you might want to visit my personal site at <mnnostalgia.com>. This is a pictorial site that may interest you with vessels from the 50s and 60s...........
I was R/O from 59 to 64.
Hope to see you often here.
Regards from Montreal.
