Hello to all

29th November 2007, 00:54
Been a member for a couple of weeks now, just thought I'd put pen to paper ( or finger to button in this case ) and say hello. Living on the Clyde at TOB, my interest in ships started when I was a boy when my dad used to take me to the container terminal to the Seatrain boats because he always knew men on them, usually from the Isle of Barra. Never leaving empty handed, a pack of Skol playing cards was my payment for steering my dad home after a night in the bar with his old pals. Those boats are long gone now, but my love of the river continues. I never got round to owning a boat, doubt if I ever will have the time, but I enjoy regular sails on CalMac's upper Clyde fleet, usually I'm heading to Dunoon to the caravan or taking the dogs to Ettrick Bay on Bute for a run on the beach. CalMac also provides the means for us to go on holiday each year, usually to Barra, but the other islands have mostly been visited too. Anyway, glad to be on board, and I have very much enjoyed looking through the galleries so far, and who knows, I might even get round to posting a couple of good shots of my own - if I ever take a good shot!!

I hope you thoroughly enjoy the SN experience and get many happy hours entertainment from your membership.
My goodness, did we have bars on the Seatrain ships? ........ Oh yes, how could I forget!
