Nice Photo Jerry M, reminds me of those day's working round the clock at sea on eng. breakdowns and the welcome breaks for a meal and a beer.

That's why I never sailed on motor ships

BlythSpirit - You don't know what you missed! Like a friend of mine said, "I still have the oil in my underpants"!!
Great picture!

I remember when I joined the Northumberland in Sydney and was induced to enter a Sulzer crankcase with a hydraulic spanner.

I remember taking the nuts off a B&W with a 28lb hammer! The idea was to just swing the hammer in a pendulum motion!

Zip me up in me oilskins and jumper.
No more by the docks I'll be seen.
Just tell me old shipmates, I'm taking a trip mates
And I'll see them sometime on Fiddler's Green
