Hello all, I was one of the many Denholms Deckcadets. I started in 1974 at the age of 16 on the Eurofrieghter, one of the gas turbine container ships, completed my apprentiship, and sailed as 3rd Mate for about seven years while the fleet slowly dwindled in the face of foreign flags. Eventually took voluntary redundancy and went to Glasgow nautical college with the money to do my Masters Cert. Spent a year or so on the Glasgow pool before getting a job with Caledonian MacBrayne as 2nd Mate. Been here since,and now sailing as Master.
