Enjoyed lurking for the last few nights, seems like a great site with the sense of humour only found aboard MN ships, particularly in the past.

Trained at King Ted's & sailed with Furness Withy, Prince Line, Everards (for my sins), Esso Tankers thence flags of convenience respectable, Bermuda & Bahamas, and questionable, Panama & El Salvador. Ashore for last thirty odd years in ship management after meeting a girl from Montreal but have married two others since then.
Now in the military patrol boat business and building motor yachts for the rich and stupid. Rich enough to afford them and stupid enough to go to sea for pleasure.

Bob welcome to the site, it is a lot of fun and I hope you continue to enjoy it and share your experiences with us, perhaps a few photos of some of your gin palaces would be nice.

Greetings Bob from the North of England.

Welcome to the site and all there is to see. I was going on holiday to PEI this year but my daughter (who lives in Ottawa) tells me it is closed so we are going to Maine instead. (*))

Will be coming through Montreal on the way back.

Best wishes,

Hi Bob, will be in your exact area in June , Staying at Dartmouth and hopefully doing some WW2 HX convoy research at the Halifax maritime museum. Will be visiting Lunenburg , so will be passing through your area. Do you know any micro-breweries or good pubs in that area. Dave and Dot Reddish. UK
