have just joined and saying hello to all. am 76 yrs of age. first went to sea in 1949. first ship `baron yarborough` of `hungry hogarths` as deck boy then later as ordinary seaman on her. still have extremely strong love of the sea and its ships. the old ships of course [from early 1900`s to around the 70`s] and most certainly NOT the modern monstrosities.

Ken, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia, it's good to have you onboard.
Quite of few of us are getting to be north of 70, so you have plenty of company here.
I think you'll enjoy our Galleries--lots of pictures of "proper" ships.:(EEK)
