Yes, it took a long time, to collect the ships I sailed on, but it's complete now, and from several ships more than one picture, so that's a nice feeling the old memories, if I can help you to find some of yours, please let me know, I do have a "big" collection now[prox.100.000 pics by now 300.000pics]
cheers...and have a nice weekend.
