Hi John when you were leaving the ben boats I was just about to start 1970 I only did 4 ships but I went on to twraling out of Aberdeen and then onto rigs and supply boats. My brother was skipper of the Grampian Warrior and my other brother spent a few years with North Star on the standby boats, I'm sure our paths must have crossed.
