Hello my future friends to be... Denmark calling...ss

Hello "fellow-ship-hobby-fan" around the World... I found this site while surfing for ship-photos and registry-informations...
I have just been here a few hours looking and discovering the homepage and I must say, that it`s the most fantastic site I have seen in a long time... I will enjoy every visit I will make here in the years to come...
So I will try to get to know you as time goes by, but I`ll promise to be a polite guy from the very beginning and if I shouldn`t keep my promise up acording to your standards I trust you`ll tell me when I need to keep my promise in mind(*)).
I will say hello to you all and wish each of you the very best in life. All said in the best meaning you can think of. And I hope you will meet me in the same way..
I`m an old, 55, danish sailor, former, and shipsbuilder, (steel), who kept my love for the sea and for all kinds of vessels and ships in the world...
So as you can see, I`m not so very different from you lot....
Currently I`m looking out for any information or photos of ships from the danish coaster-company Nielsen & Bresling, or Bres-line... They have 50 years anniversery this year and I have been sailing in their ships for some 3 to 4 years when I was a very young and hopefull man.... And I am trying to find pictures of each and every ship they have now, or have had in the past. And what the former Bres-ships is conserned I`ll be looking for their photos and registrations since they were Bres-ships. I have found out, that some of them are scrapped, sunk, or has been laid up for a shorter or longer period of time. And some of them have had many new names and registrations and are rather difficult to track, but I`m still looking for pics and/or inforrmations of any kind about the ships, and I`m hoping very much to get lucky...ss..
That was a little about me, a strange dane, or is it a danish stranger???
Forgive me for my english language, I haven`t used it very much since I stopped sailing many many, very many, years ago....ss... So I`m writing this letter trying to remember my school-learnings within english tongue, and that isn`t too good I think... But I tried my very best to make this mail understandable to you.... Hope I succeeded in an allright manor...
Beast reagards to you from Kent in Denmark....

Hello, Kent-in-Denmark !

Your use of the English language is first class, make no apologies for anything. When I used to deal with Amerada Hess at their Copenhagen offices I was always impressed with just how expert the Danes whom I worked with were in the English language. Hope you find what you are after in due course and enjoy this excellent maritime website.

Welcome to this great site. My first ship belonged to the Damskabelskabet (Spelling) line which was managed by Brockelbank during the war. It was torpedoed and Captain Roder received a Danish decoration.
You will find all kinds of people with all kinds of backgrounds on this site

Welcome aboard and Enjoy
