Any body out there remember the Navimercantile vessels.
Started in the last 70's Angela Helen.Justin M etc.
Didn't last long but when they were on the go was a good outfit.
Ships built in Poland and double skinned hulls so unlike previous coasters these could make a ballast passage in weather.
I know of two guy's who are member's were master's there at the time and another has sadly passed away.
Just wonder what happened to the rest of the guys.

Arrived here yesterday.
Yes I agree about the Gillibrands but still think there made a mistake by putting all their eggs in one baskets with HS Coastings that what bust them Neil.
Remember Jim Sloman, Norman Mc Donald.
Sounds like you need to change your pasport you have been there so long.
I know Bob Henderson was on this site last yaer but haven't seen his name come up for awhile. Still about Bob!!
Take care Love to Wendy.
