Hello, all

Hi, I joined today and am really impressed by the activity.
I was brought up on the Clyde when it was still a shipbuilding centre and now live in Michigan. I've always been interested in ships, especially the Scottish lines, both ocean going and coastal. Enjoy very much the North American river, coastal and Great Lakes passenger and freight companies. A little off topic, but if anyone on the forum is an ice boat sailor (DN60), I would love to hear from them.
Best to all,
Bruce Carson

Thanks, Steve, I know I'm going to enjoy the site.

One thing I should have mentioned in my introduction:
I found out about SN from a posting on the Yahoo Group 'Scotships'.
The poster had seen the ad in Ships Monthly.

I also am a member of the Yahoo Group 'NewLinersGroup'.

Hi Bruce good to hear you are interested in "Scottish Lines" I spent 4 very happy years with the Ben Line in the fifties. Hope you enjoy the site

Thanks again for the warm welcome.
With names like Fairfield and mention of the Ben Line, it's truly nostalgia for me.
Paul, I'm agonizing over the choice of the Saltire of St. Andrew or the Stars & Stripes and that's a difficult choice for me to make. Maybe I'll switch back and forth.
Julian, I'm afraid that I'm the one that should be hung out to dry every so often. Here's a picture and more than you ever wanted to know about the Michigan State Flag. If I remember rightly, the translation of the motto is, roughly, "If you seek a beautiful peninsula, look around you".
Best, Bruce C.
