Boltons' History

Hi Guys,
I don't know who's out there or who knows me but here goes a venture about our old outfit which I hope may be of some interest.

https://sites.google.com/site/bolton...pingcoltd/home

I did point a finger in it's direction a couple of weeks ago to someone I was chatting with but didn't realise I was going public
Anyway I've moved it all on a bit since then and hopefully refined the detail and corrected all (some) of the glaring mistakes.
It's not finished yet (and probably never will be) but I've got six ships piccies missing and need loads of '1st Hand' detail for each vessel.
It's not mandatory to contribute of course, but we're not getting any younger, and I don't want our company (or us) to fade away.

Please tell me what you think and give me some yarns.

Regards

Another name for the list

I joined Bolton SS as apprentice on 14th October 1964, MV 'Ripon', Queens Dock' Cardiff and then Redcar, Ruysdale, Ribblehead, Rubens, Reynolds, Ribera. I left as 2nd Mate, then rejoined BMM as mate on Nosira Lyn some tears later. It's good to see so many names still around !

Yes John, I remember it well. I was standing between two generators when the ship heeled over that quickly, I thought the geny behind me had blown up and this was my last breath.
Seemed to remember that the impact buckled the deck in the accomodation (amongst other, more serious, damage) and the 2/E (Tommy Spoor) had to sleep elswhere as his bunk was over the buckle.

If anyone is still looking at this thread, they might like to know that Pete Newton has created an Ex Boltons group on Facebook.

Here is a crew list of those Old Boltonians still kicking...I'm sure we will track down more:

Gordon Carey
Derek Chapman
Peter Charnley
Nick Chell
Simon Coate
Chris Cooke
Jim Cooper
Howard Cox
Peter Davidson
Keith Fulker
David Fullwood
Malcolm Gator
Lloyd Housley
Ian Huckin
Geoff Long
Phil Pick
Peter Sandvid
Stuart Tait
Terry Upson
Colin Wilson

Between us I am sure we have a huge inventory of stories, experiences and pictures. Let's share them......(If we make relevant posts elsewhere would it be worth including them here too?)

Best wishes all,

Ian

Yep that's Mad Pete although he's not so mad now as he is doing very well for himself. He had a new hip last year, I told him all that weight lifting was a waste of time!!

Ever hear from Shaggy?

I joined the 'Ripon', in Glasgow, as junior R/O in September 1964...So we must have sailed together...
I'd just done 3 months on a new supertanker so seeing this 'tiny' ship, covered in iron ore dust was a bit of a shock..However, she was one of the happiest ships I ever sailed on. I left her Christmas eve 1964 in Liverpool ( a bunch of us ended up in the "Starlight Club" on 23rd Dec and I've got a photo of us; I'll try and find it and scan it in) ....

If memory serves, we sailed together again when you were 3rd mate on the Ribblehead/Ruysdale?

I was on Ribera, I think it was her maiden voyage mid late 60's out of Nth Shields (?) to the States. I was an AB but came from the bridge ex deck app. It was a period during which I had a fantastic time. This was my second-third to last trip I think? She was a very happy ship with mostly Geordie crew. Last trip was Mendoza Star doing the WCSA a great trip to end to my sea time (: This was her last trip to she was sold on & I went ashore to university & then into the mining oil-gas industry which was as much fun as being at sea.
