Hi Billy and Willie.
Thats the one Willie,think he was a boy with Jimmy Macdonald in the Royal Bob was from Thurso.I sailed with a cousin of his on the Seaway Explorer who told me that Bob works with BT in Inverness.Each time I am in Inverness I look around for him,even today.but knowing Bob I don,t suppose he frequents the shops. Billy if Tony is still on the go he must be about 76. I have lost all track of most of the Ben Line crowd but they sometimes pop up.From the Lawers I meet Willie Wood AB and sometimes Davie Goodbrand but haven,t seen him for some time.I had a birthday last week Billy but there was no cargo brand Royal Salute or Tanqueray Gin.only common Grouse.No idea if Dutchie is still kicking around,didn,t get on with him anyway.Had a walk down Leith last time home looking into the ABs haunts but none to be seen.
One I don,t know where he is, is Billy Sinclair,where are you hiding when you are at sea Billy.?

Hi Eric.
The baker and his brother were Bruce & Garry Smith from Huntly.Bruce I believe had a bad accident on the St.Clair or one of them a few year back.maybe Bob Easdale knows about it as he went there.Did you reach Invergordon I waved but you didn,t see me. Lol !!!!
At present in the Gulf of Mexico and will be home just before Christmas.Tell George Bowie to buy you a Chrtistmas drink from me.I am getting your jokes regular to cheer me up.I need it this week,we have a cook that can,t cook.
