Hello from ChrisP

9th August 2005, 20:29
Hi All,

I was at Silley Cox & Co at Falmouth docks as an electrical apprentice/electrician from 1962 to 1968 than at sea with Trident Tankers/P&O Bulk Shipping from 1968 to 1977. Been an electrical surveyor with various insurance companies since 1979. As you can guess from the fact that I was at Silley's and then Trident/P&O Bulk my main interest is tankers of all shapes and sizes, but any ships are of interest.

This looks to be a great site, but I only found out about it from the advert on the back page of Ships Today & Yesterday. I will be bringing it to the attention of all the members of my local WSS branch at our next meeting.

All the best
