Barrys, from Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia.
Good to have you onboard.
I wouldn't be surprised if you heard from some old shipmates before long.

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)
