Small world, Hun & gdynia, was on the Lochnagar with Mike and Co from Feb 92 until Sept 94, think that was when they took her away for conversion.

Must have left around the same time then, sent me to the Grimshader! Can you remember the big 2nd Mate, Keith Archer? Hear from him now and then. But never ran across anyone else since then.

Keep in touch with Big Keith he got home last week from Peterhead. I bumped into him in Baku last year. Was with him in 70,s on Baltic Venture. I saw Ivan A.B. last time home in Aberdeen and keep in touch with Bob Stephenson ex Geordie Bosun as well.

Ivan still got the long hair? Big Pat was with Havila a while ago but his wife passed away and he dropped out of sight. Remember Bob Stephenson, give him my best next time you see him.

Great boat and two good crews! She did cost me my "Macho Man" image with the "Good Lady" though. Been telling her for years what a hard life we had in the North Sea, then when we had that little bump with the platform and had a few days in for repairs she came to visit. Not the rowing boat she had been expecting!!! And she hasn't believed all the fibs I have told since!!!!!

Good to have you aboard Highland hun, I think you and Gulpers may find many things to talk about, he's an ex "D" man too.

Enjoy the Foinaven.

Best wishes.

Cant remember Phil, think John was the best cook I have ever sailed with, Sandy is with Havila, forgotten about him, sailed with him on the Star a couple of years ago

John was a wasted talent he would put any Brocks,Cunard or the other companies Chefs to shame

******** Gdynia !
We had Silver Service ! The best of feeding + ( Curry !!! O Yes ! )
Been offshore the " Scran " is good but the service is Sh-te !.
Imagine having to make your own bunk ?? Cleaning your own Shoes ??? Doing your own laundry .
No cup of tea and a toast delivered to your cabin when called in the morning ?? Washing your own boiler suits ?? Dishes ???
No Bar !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Etc Etc !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ill take what we had ! On behalf of all Brocks . "We had the Best of it All "
" And we still have a Wee bit left thanks to SN ."
Have a Good Leave Gdynia . We are jealous that you are still at sea . ( Mind you retired is not a bad option . )
