I was on board at the time - nice crowd if rather a lot - 3 leckies for instance. Left in Liverpool and flew out to the Wild Avocet - something of a contrast

My first ship' deck boy on the Hurunui, Joined from Southend Pier in 1972 did the coast and the Kiwi run
Also did the scrap run to Pusan Korea
I just loved the Kiwi coast what an adventure for a young lad
The Bosun John Hay was a very fare man.
Did a few wild boats myself including the Avocet.

He also loved a good party
His brother Bert lived in Wellington NZ up at the prison and would always come down with his mate when we were in, bringing a fiddle and a squeeze box along to entertain the lads "great."
