Last time I heard of him he was harbourmaster in Hay Point or Mackay, Queensland. Few years ago now though.

If you find him I would love to know where he's at and how he is. Johhn was one of the finest guys afloat when I was an apprentice. As I have stated before if he had been my boss things may have turned out differently.

Cheers
Don

John Lowan's Father was a Friend of my Mothers back in the early sixties. Johnny lived close to us. He was a little older than me and ended up being best friends with my Bother In Law Dave (Paddy) Ramsey. We were all Bank Line Apprentices.....
Paddy has since passed on but my Sister has Johnny's address and Email (I think) in Australia. I have put a call into her so I should be able to get you all in contact. I never sailed with him but I am sure he was a great Master as was Paddy.
Perhaps Charlie Stitt knows of his whereabouts.
Take care.
TC

I've tracked down a J D & M A Lowans in a suburb of Cairns. I will email you Ian with the results. Maybe, maybe not.

I'll wait and see if my Sister can come up with his Email

I think it is me you are looking for.

I only registered on this site today to respond to a posting about a young lad who was killed on the Cedarbank many years ago when I was 2nd Mate in her. I am not too sure how the site works but I would be interested to know who you are and would be happy to establish contact with you.

Regards.

Hi John,

Have sent you a private e mail with a few details i.e. my e mail address and also of Ros Browning who has been looking for you.

Kind Regards Ian
