A warm welcome to the site from the Isle of Anglesey, I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
You will certainly spark many happy memories when you have a chance to explore our threads and, who knows, you may even re-establish contact with old shipmates.
Good luck! (Thumb)

Welcome aboard, Snorkers.
Not too sure what the collective for a group of us is but we have enough in the crew to use our own collective callsigns when necessary.
Well equipped radio room with all the best of the vintage gear.
Find your way around the ship, join in with the chat and enjoy the trip.

Good to have you onboard.
Chances are you'll run into old shipmates here on SN.
