This is a great sight. have been browsing for a couple of weeks now..
I spent 11 years with Hains from 1953 to 1964, working up from apprentice to second mate. Must have been a glutton for punishment but did have some very good times.

A belated welocme aboard from East Yorkshire.
Now that you've found your way around the ship it's time to join in.
Have a good trip.

Welcome from another old Barrian, I live in the flat bit of Europe now. My first trip was Trelissick, out of Barry in '62.
