Justin, how nice to meet up again. Yes those were good days with Michael and Jim. How are they both, are they ever on here?
I expect that Cpt Michael will be long retired by now... should you see him please give him and his dear lady my regards.

Emma is well and still on the HSS, now in the Ro Ro lounge and enjoying making friends with all the Dutch Truckers!! She Now has 2 small boys one of whom is at school (How the time flyís)

If Jim Kennedy is still about, pse tell him I'd love to hear from him.

Hope to catch you again
Kind Regards

Mike 'O'

Hi Mike,

We're now living in Australia, but yes I keep in touch with the gang. I last saw Mike in February when we were over, he was looking great after a bypass operation last year. Saw Jim when I was back again in September - never changes!!!

We briefly saw Emma on the HSS in February, was good to catch up! The 'Stingers' cuddly toy she bought for my eldest back in 1994 still survives and is now with our youngest!!

Keep in touch!

Justin

Aye they donít seem to build seas like those, these days.. I remember being on watch when the old Crane on the breakwater went missing... all due to a GURT BIG Goffer

Glad to hear you have settled in over there I will pass on your regards to Emma when I see her, she is on board till 0600 so I hope to see her this afternoon
